Knowing a second language kicks ass.
*Note: This won't be one of my better blogs considering it was inspired from ugdorks McDonald's blog*
I'm sure we've all encountered one in this f******d up world we live in. You know, the guy who likes to fuck with you by speaking in a language other than English? They're usually Spanish and will do it at inconvenient times i.e. drive-thru windows, business transactions, etc. The logic behind this is that you both know english, but you don't know the language they know, so why not have a little fun huh? Oh it's satisfying getting back at them.
Here's some background, I know a smidge of German. Yeah, the "SIEG HEIL" Nazi language Kaustic's dog speaks (HAAAAAAAAAHH). And over the weekend, a Hispanic (I'm being nice) I know from my church decides to pull the "Look, I know a language you don't" trick. I think he said something about my mother....I'm not sure though. But without missing a beat, I immediately retort "Oh hallo, wie geht's? Meine Kartoffel ist sehr HieB fur dich!" (you get brownie points if you know what that says). He just looked at me, called me a douchebag and walked away. If there was one reason for learning another language, it's moments like that that make it all worth the work.
