A missionary moment
Yes, this is based on a true story. It's actually an easy thing to do in Korean.
My best language faux pas, however, was different.
Elder Sellers and I were knocking on doors in some apartments across from one of the college campuses in Yeosu. A young lady answered the door, we introduced ourselves...then she screamed and slammed and bolted the door.
We asked the ward mission leader what was up with that.
"What did you say at the door?" he asked. We told him, and he started laughing.
"You were off by one syllable," he chuckled. "You didn't introduce yourself as missionaries. You introduced yourselves as sex teachers!"
