‘Vietnamese people aren’t short’: Englishman gets confused with health faucet at hotel
Hamish Carruthers, a British man, had a really difficult time taking a shower at a Vietnamese hotel. While he said that Hanoi, the country’s capital, accorded him a warm welcome, he had a tough time having a bath using a small hand-held shower. Turns out that Carruthers had mistaken the health faucet attached to the bidet, and termed it as a ‘Vietnamese shower’.
“Vietnamese people aren’t that short,” the puzzled Brit wrote along with a photo of him bending down to match the height of the bidet shower. The post created quite a buzz on social media while many wondered if the traveller was joking.
