A gentleman came to me at work today, looking for a solution to his Mac problem. I noticed his German accent. (Some parts were spoken in German. I had them translated to English.)

"I beg your pardon for asking, but where are you from originally?"
"I used to live in Germany. Kind of hard to get rid of the accent, you know, like Arnold Schwarzeneggar?"
"I understand... though I believe Arnold is from Österreich?"
(In German) "Austria, yes. Haha. So where did you learn German?"
(In German) "Oh, from my friends, my teacher, in classes."
(In German) "Cool."
(In German) "German is my second language."
(In German) "You speak German very well."
(In German) "Thanks, I try." (Now in English, since that is the limit of my knowledge.) So this is what you'll need...

The man was very nice. Just something interesting I come across every once in a while.

Now it's really a good thing you're learning German :)

I think your customer must have been very impressed! At least that's a thing I wouldn't expect.

Well... as I don't really have a job like this right now there are no interesting conversations. But I'm sure that I'll provide something once my time as a primary and secondary teacher starts. :)

Nothing in a different language, but seeing as i work with exotic animals, usually their owners a pretty crazy. We get a LOT of random conversations when theye waiting to see the vet ;)

My Job Doesnt Really Get Many Convorsations, I Just Grade Gems Or write Up Gemological Reports, Or Do Company Research. So My Jobs Dont Get Much Convo with Customers.

Some time ago, when I was working at the front desk of an hotel nearby Vienna, a plane couldn't take off because of the bad weather, so the clients had to stay overnight....

Client (American) while checking in :" Actually where am I right now?"
Me: "You're in Vienna"
Client: "...."
Me: "Capital of Austria?"
Client: "...."
Me: "Europe?"
Client: "Ah....okay...."
Me: "Mozart? Sound of Music?"
Client: "Ah that does ring a bell! So which language do you speak here?"
Me: "German"
Client: "AHHH! I'm in Germany!"
Me: "No Sir, you're In Austria"

At this point the conversation stopped :D
Keys were handed over and he left....

At this moment I didn't know that I had to explain this again and again to other future guests
