English isn’t always easy

So I met this cute Chinese girl the other day and we started chatting. I got her number and we begun texting. It is one of the funniest text exchanges I have had in a while.. Take a look:
Me: Hi Helen, it is Tom, the guy you met earlier. It was fun chatting with you. Did you have a good meeting with your advisor?
Her: Hi Tom. Not so good. And I have to restart my proposal.
Me: Oh noo.. that’s unfortunate. Sorry.. Have you decided what your new proposal is going to be?
Her: Unfortunately, I have to work on my proposal this weekend.
Me: That’s no fun. What is your proposal?
Her: Sorry for replying your message last as I was in the party the signal wasn’t good. Now I am in home.
Me: Nice – sounds like fun! Hope it was good. Hei do you want to meet up on Monday for coffee?
Her: Ok, what time? Because I have an appointment at 4
Me: We can do when I am finished with work. So around 630 or 7?
Her: That’s perfect
Me: Sweet, does somewhere around Hopton Street work?
Her: I have no idea, what do you think?
There was more to the exchange, but I really wanted to share this part. Awesome how language barriers can create funny moments..
