So to tell you the truth, I'm not particularly bothered by the way that the dude interspersed his declarations of affection for me with miscellaneous food references (given my love for food, his approach might have worked in a different context). What offends me is his use of some of the most disgusting and cliched Chinese take-out dishes on the planet. I think that if he'd uttered the words "egg foo young," I might have physically beat him.
I read a great book in one of my sociology classes in which an interaction of this kind was described as "interactional vandalism." Needless to say, I feel completely defaced.
