Lost In No Translation, Part 3

Caller: “Hello. Do you have an Italian to American dictionary?”

(Note that the caller doesn’t seem to have trouble speaking English, and has a New York accent.)

Me: “We have Italian to English dictionaries.”

Customer: “No, no. I need Italian to American because English is a different language, right?”

Me: “The English language is what we speak in America.”

Customer: *frustrated* “Can I speak to someone who might know better?!”
