Today, my boss is on the phone with a Russian customer, who keeps saying, "Speak Russian please!" My boss asks me to translate, as he hired me for my knowledge of Russian. He says something, I translate in Russian, then the customer says, "Speak English please!" FML

Answer in french to show your lingual superiority.

Happened to me when I went away.. No one wanted to hear my French because they decided that their English was better. It's shitty but all you can do is keep trying.

This is why people have trust issues
