Lost In No Translation, Part 4

| British Columbia, Canada | Extra Stupid, Language & Words, Tourists/Travel

(I live in a small town where a cruise ship visits in the summer. Mind you, this is BC, Canada, so English is the main language spoken here, rather than French canadians in Quebec. Note that our entire conversation is in English.)

Customer: “Hi! May I ask you a question?”

Me: “Sure, no problem!”

Customer: “Do people speak French here?”

Me: “Well, some people might, but it’s more of a second language here.”

Customer: “Oh, really? Well, I think you’re speaking it very well, because I can understand you!”

Me: *dumbfounded*

(At this point, the customer’s husband steps in.)

Customer’s Husband: “She’s not speaking French, honey.”

Customer: “…Oh.” *walks away*
