Language Barrier 10 3, 10:22pm

My mom knows multiple languages, including French. One time when she was in college and visiting Paris, she tried to speak to the waiter in French, and he refused to acknowledge that he understood her, kept pretending that he couldn't understand her. So she switched to German and asked him, "Do you understand me better in German?" Astonishingly, he had no problems understanding her French after that.
