This is hilarious; nice detail, Andrew. It reminds me of the time a friend and I were trying to mail packages home to the U.S. from Nice. She went first, speaking English the entire time, and a huge struggle ensued. She spoke more and more loudly as the postal clerk pretended not to understand any English. He finally became utterly annoyed with her, snapping, "This is not America and we do not speak English!" (in perfect English). My turn was next. As I struggled to string together a few words of French that would get my point across, the man smiled broadly at me and provided all the information I needed to mail my package, in perfect English of course.
