American and Indonesian

Tersebutlah seorang Engineer Indonesian bekerja di America. Sebagai seorang warga Asia, dia punya krisis kepercayaan diri, sehingga terus menerus berusaha meyakinkan semua orang sono bahwa dia sama baiknya dengan orang America.
Sewaktu sedang meeting di Kantor, dia bicara dengan Bossnya orang America:
Indonesian : Boss, I am as good as You.
American : Why ?
Indonesian : I have job in US, You have job in US, We are the same.
American : Make sense, it's OK.
Sewaktu pulang Kantor, di parkiran mobil dia berkata lagi:
Indonesian : Hey, I am as good as You.
American : Why ?
Indonesian : I have my own car, You have your own car, We are the same.
American : Ok, No problem.
Besoknya, Pagi-pagi dia berkata lagi:
Indonesian : Hey, I am as good as you.
American : (Tanpa bertanya lagi) Ok, Ok, no problem.

Untuk semakin meningkatkan kepercayaan diri, engineer Indonesia ini segera pindah rumah, satu kompleks dengan orang America tadi. Pagi-pagi, sewaktu mau berangkat ke Kantor, di depan pintu rumah, dengan bangganya dia berkata lagi sama orang america tadi :
Indonesian: Hey, now, I am better than you.
American : Why ? So far you always tell me that I am as good as You.
Indonesian: Yes, but now I am better than you.
American : Why ?
Indonesian: Because, My Neighbor is American, but Your Neighbor is Indonesian.
