Lost In Translation, Or Just Plain Lost

| Friendly | March 26, 2014

(I am waiting with several other people for a long distance bus driving from Berlin to Luxembourg City. Some of them are chatting in French. A guy approaches me who seems to be travelling alone and who has been observing all the others around him.)

Guy: “Where is Luxembourg City?”

Me: “Um, Luxembourg City is located in Luxembourg.”

Guy: “What?!”

Me: “Well, ‘Luxembourg’ is the name of the country and its capital.”

Guy: “Uh-huh. And what language do they speak there?”

Me: “Besides Luxembourgish, also French and German.”

Guy: “Whaaat?! That’s weird! These people are so stupid.”
