Yesterday, I learned some new phrases and idioms when I was walking along a congested alley in Binh Thanh District. A taxi suddenly pulled out and nearly hit me and a motorbike driver taking his child to school. Both drivers got into it and I recognized some phrases that would get me banned here. To attempt to defuse the situation, I shouted, "Các bạn không được nói bậy!"

They were shocked to see this old white guy in the neighborhood speaking Vietnamese and laughed. Mission accomplished.
