  • No Speaka Da German

    train stationA few years ago, I decided to visit my brother who was stationed in Germany. I assumed that most Germans would speak English. But I found that many people spoke only their native tongue - including the ticket inspector on the train.

    He punched my ticket, then chatted cordially for a bit, making gestures like a windmill. I simply nodded from time to time to show him that I was interested.

    When he had gone, an American woman in the compartment leaned forward and asked if I spoke German.

    "No," I confessed.

    "Then that explains," she said, "why you didn't bat an eyelid when he told you that you were on the wrong train."

    The student replied. "BIG ones."
