It's fun to work in a workplace with guests and collegues from all over Europe. One of my first targets was to learn the six most important languages. I calculated that I can communicate with 95% of the guests in their motherlanguage. Ofcourse you don't learn only the standardphrases but with the influence of your collegues you learn also the language of the street -and the bed.
Today Italian guests at table 305. At a certain moment they point at a citrus and ask me:'Do you know how it's called in Italian?' "I don't know, I'll ask the kitchen." "No no, si chiama pompino, puoi anche dire pompa".
Mmm.. the guest is not ALWAYS right
