Situation: An ESL student from China tells on another student for using an iPod during class. The results will cause dramatic economic events in the future, promising to affect trade relations between the two super powers.
ESL Student: She’s playing a trivia game on her iPod.
Student: I’m reading and studying too.
Teacher: Put the iPod away or give it to me. I commend you for at least playing trivia and not Angry Birds.
Student to ESL Student: You better quit tattle-telling.
ESL Student: Or what?
Student: Or (pause) … or I’ll quit buying products from China.
Student 2: Good luck with that one.
