Getting It All In Español

| Right | June 5, 2015

(I’m an American traveling across Europe and manage to get spectacularly lost while in Berlin. I enter a shop to ask for directions.)

Me: *in very bad German* “Excuse me. I don’t speak German very well. Can you help me get to [Cross-Street]?”

(The EXTREMELY patient clerk tries her best but her English is about as bad as my German. Finally…)

Me: *jokingly* “Habla Español?”

Clerk: *in Spanish* “Yes! I do!”

(The rest of the conversation was in Spanish. I got my directions without further problems!)
