There are many Chinese American laundry shops in the USA and they normally use Chinese names. There is one very popular laundry shop chain named Goldberg Laundry but it is owned and operated by a Chinese family. One day a customer gets very curious and asks the owner how come the name of their laundry shop is Jewish even though they are Chinese. "Well, it happened like this," the owner, whose surname is Ting, explains. "My grandfather was lining up for registration at the Immigration counter and he was behind a Jewish gentleman who reported that his name was Goldberg. Then my grandfather's turn was next and when asked to report his name, he said,"Sam Ting."
