An episode in my life.
I was a poor graduate - just out of uni. And had a small teaching post in Chung Hua School.
Lunch for me was just sandwiches : butter and jam from home.
The young overseas graduate teacher (I am not sure if he was a certified teacher) came up to me and asked "What are you having?"
I said "Sandwich - butter and jam sandwich. Want some?"
"Nah.... I only like ham sandwiches..."
He never spoke to me again....and I did not want to have anything to do with such an arrogant person.....
At that moment somehow he reminded me of Marie Antoinette(French Queen) who thought that her starving people should just eat cakes...and the French Revolution changed the political outlook of the Europeans.
