Who Is Crazy?

Today I were quite busy in the kitchen and since everyone is out , I got to take care of the shop. There were quite a number of walk-in customer in the afternoon. Hubby will be coming to the shop about 4pm. Since, he is about to reach in 10 minutes I decided to measure my stuff and start baking another batch of cakes. While I were beating the cake mix a lady at her late 40's walk in. So, I stop the mixture and go outside. Immediately she see me, she tell me this - 'wah! your cornflakes very cheap lar'. I did not get her at first coz she don't speak good english. She took a 1kg packet of cornflakes and sit down in front of my cashier table. Talk to me where I don't understand what she is talking about. Later, I ask her whether is she japanese and she said no, she is a koreanese (that is what she say). She told me she is married to a local man for more than 15 years.
After that, she ask if she can sit down for 10 minutes to take a rest coz she walk for Adventist hospital to my shop (that is about 15 minutes walking distant). I told yes and she sat down. Slowly she begin her conversation from english to mandarin. Alamak!!! I lagi cannot understand. I am not very good in mandarin - only so so. She sit down in front of me and talk and talk and talk ............................. until I get so bored coz most of the things she talk about, I don't understand. She sat in front of me and start to talk and talk and talk. I continue to read the blog and more blogs.
Suddenly, she asked me is my husband treating me well and does he nag me alot. I were shock and do not know what to say. After that, I just reply her that my husband don't really talk alot. She smile and say that I am such a lucky lady. Now she continue to talk and talk and tell me that she got a daughter who is about to finish her Form 5. Again she say something that shock me - she said "there was a time when I were having sex with my husband suddenly my daughter run inside the room. I got so scared and hide myself in the cupboard". I look at her and said, "your daughter so big liau wor". Then, I got her wrong. That was many many years ago when her daughter is still very young. She really make me go crazy.
She spend about 20 minutes in my shop talking nonsense. I do not know who is the crazy one. Is she the crazy one who talk nonsense or I am the silly idiot listening to her crazy story.
