Me: (Apparently speaking in what I assume was poor German for no apparent reason other than tired.) Ich möchte eine tasse kaffe bitte. (German for: I would like a cup of coffee please)
Coffee Lady: Eine große oder kleine? (German for: Large or small?)
Me: (very much confused) Did I ask for coffee in German?
Coffee Lady: Yes.
Me: Oh. Uh, große, bitte. (German: A large cup please)
Coffee Lady: Coffee's on me. You're going to miss your test.
(I run to class.)
|My wonderful Helga with her grandbaby. I don't know who is more adorable.|
After my midterm I came back and chatted with her and we have been friends ever since! And she's bought more than a few cups of Joe for me!
