This is an important one to know if you're ever traveling on a train and run into some Vietnamese gangsters.

cái classifier refers something inanimate tangible, so those gangsters would think you are a retard - this means that you are literally a machine.

However, if you would change the classifier into, let's say, thằng (a brat), then they see your point. I don't know though if that exist as a word. I guess they still would think you as a retard. Maybe with other better classifier?
