I actually paused not knowing how to answer that.
I'd give him a bit of slack.. he could've been colorblind... I was in japan recently with my friend who has mild colorblindness in the reds... he couldn't tell red from pink... why this was important was because the subway lines while not always in english/romanized japanese... are all color coded in every city.
It's hard for a non asian to remember funky asian names, so we'd go by name and color, he really thought he was walking towards the pink subway line when we were really walking towards the red one. They were all sort of grey/brown he said, so saying pink red and orange had very little meaning to him.
But your grey guy? maybe he was colorblind in part of the spectrum... maybe he wasn't.
