Communication Breakdown

Today, I was unable to communicate with a customer who only spoke French. As a result, my boss called me a "monolingual idiot." I speak Spanish, German, and Japanese. FML

If you speak Spanish, German and Japanese, who wrote your FML in English for you? ¿Quién?

I often wonder how much information I lose in translation with customers. Boss sounds rude, ignore.

Are you expected to know how to speak and understand French for your job? If so, your mistake. If not, yiu shouldve passed the phone to a colleague that spoke and understands French.

Sounds like grounds to get them fired. Even if you only spoke one language.
