Anthropology

Describe an incident you participated in or observed that involved cross-cultural miscommunication. What was the outcome? You can use an incident involving miscommunication between people of different genders.

This sounds like a fun assignment. You missed the word YOU. Think of some time when something you said was not understood by someone of a different culture. ( or visaversa) What happened? Was the outcome humorous? How was it resolved? What about teenagers and senior citizens not understanding the "vernacular"?
When you have finished the assignment, please repost and we will be happy to proofread and make suggestions.

What incident have you observed? If you post your answer here, we'll be glad to critique it.
