1-800-QUOI??

 

A recent phone conversation of mine, originally in French. This is what being lost in translation looks like.

French Lady: “Hello?”

Me: “Yes hi, I’m looking for information regarding having my birth certificate translated into French. Are you able to do this?”

French Lady: “I’m sorry sir, the woman who lived here died.”

Me: “Ok, no problem. So she’ll be there on Monday?”

Barf.
