Memang, aku kurang pintar berbahasa Indonesia, tapi saya selalu coba belajar dan jika saya tidak tahu bagaimana bilang itu atau ini, aku tanya orang. Kenapa kebanyakan orang Indonesia nga mau belajar bahasa ingriss yang tetap? Aneh itu. Mungkin gara gara gengsi. Kasihan orang kebodohan. Kasihan. Nga mungkin masyarakat Indonesia bisa maju asal kebanyakan orang jadi orang goblok. Orang Indo selalu akan mengandalkan sama orang bule.
