Dinner, first evening. The funniest thing just happened at the neighbouring table. A group of six German speaking guys order their meals in a both tongue- and heart-breakingly twisted English. After the waitress has repeated their orders, one guy adds french fries to the list:
Guy (with a thick German accent): And one french fries please!
Waitress (feigning a natural sweetness): Do you want it with the soup or with the main meal?
Guy (clearly puzzled and not understanding, even slightly shaken): With ketchup?!
The ensuing pause, filled with embarassment and disbelief on all sides is finally broken by my giggle.
We had a nice chat afterwards.
