Language Barrage, Intelligence Mirage

| Joplin, MO, USA | Language & Words

(I work in the box office of a movie theater. A teenage girl comes up and asks me about Angelina Jolie’s new movie.)

Me: “Hello, welcome to [theater]. What can I get for you?”

Customer: “What’s the movie Salt about?”

Me: “Well, it’s got Angelina Jolie in it and it’s about espionage.

(A very confused looked crosses the girl’s face while she processes what I’ve said for several seconds. She’s clearly hung up on the word “espionage”.)

Customer: “Oh…so it’s in Spanish?”
