Today, I was instructed by my boss to welcome the 2 new foreign business partners since I am the only one who could speak their language. When they arrived I greeted them in their language. One of them scratched his head and asked his companion in plain and clear English, "What did he say?" FML

Haha, in Canada for a school trip I spent a good 15 minutes getting up the nerve to order something in a mall in french, and when I did, I got a "Would you like ketchup with that?" in English.

Oh man, this is one of the best FMLs I've read in a week. Hilarious.

you're an idiot. most people can't speak French in Canada.

You, sir, must live under a rock.

Your an idiot ALOT of canadiens speak French! Dumbass

Actually, 20, most of us can speak at least some basic French because French classes are mandatory in school from at least grade 3 to grade 10, if not longer.

The majority of people in Canada speak English, even if they are fluent in French. However most people know a basis of both languages so there really is no need to worry about something as simple as ordering.

grades4-9 in ontario!

Umm.....Canadiens speak English

#20 Most Canadians know some french, especially in Quebec if I'm not mistaken.

#24 they are not mandatory in Alberta. I can't speak a single word of French and don't actually know anyone who can. I had the option to take French in grade 8 though.
