Some of the details are slightly embellished for entertainment purpose.
As I was working out of my father’s office on July 25th, I wanted to take a break so I started reading my Twitter feed and came across an interesting tweet, so I tweeted it to my followers what I thought was fairly innocuous tweet that said:
I checked few more tweets and then went back to my work.
Approximately an hour later, I received a frantic call from my daughter.
She sounded really upset and asked with anger, “Did you just send a tweet, ‘Un Married’?”
I said, “Yes, isn’t it a great news?”
She angrily asks, “Do you think it is appropriate to tweet something like that?”
I said, “Sorry! You are right. Perhaps I should have broken the news face-to-face.”
I asked her, “What does Mom think?”
She exclaimed, “Mom told everyone, and her sisters are on their way to comfort her.”
I said, “Why? Don’t they have anything better to do? Don’t get me wrong, you know how much I like their visiting us.”
She requested that I come home right away since my son and wife are not taking it well.”
I was puzzled, but did as my daughter ordered. I didn’t realize that Un’s marriage would cause so much consternation in my family.
I get home and the scene was very tense. I could hear my son and wife sobbing upstairs.
I asked my daughter, “Why you, your brother and mom are so worked up about my tweet?"
She asks, “What should we do?”
I said, “Well, if you feel so strongly, perhaps you should send a present.”
She has now totally lost it and asks angrily, “What are you talking about? You are not making any sense.”
I said, “Un got married.”
She says, “ What? Who is Un?”
I said, “He is the dictator of North Korea.”
She replies, “You mean ‘Yoon’?”
“Yes, he is the leader of North Korea. His name is spelled ‘Un’ and he got married.”
She asks again, “What should we do?”
I said, “You all ought to send him a nice present.”
She got mad and told me to immediately to delete the tweet, which, of course, I did.
Thus ends another chapter in the Oza family with our strange experience with Social Media.
