    It’s A Small (100% English Speaking) World

    | Charleston, SC, USA |

    Customer: “This movie is in German. I want a different one.”

    (It was “The Lives of Others,” which won Best Foreign Film at the Oscars–which was stated on the box in big letters.)

    Me: “I can’t give you another movie, because it was subtitled. Plus, it says it on the box in two places.”

    Customer: “But I don’t speak German.”

    Me: “Neither do I.”

    Customer: “Why do they make movies in German in America?”

    Me: “Because it was made by German people.”
