Multilingual Skill

Two highway workers are at a construction site when a car with diplomatic plates pulls up.

“Parlez-vouz français?” the driver asks. The two just stare.

“Hablan ustedes español?” the driver tries. They stare some more.

“Sprechen Sie Deutsch?” They continue to stare.

“Parlate italiano?” Nothing. Finally the man drives off in disgust.

One worker turns to the other and says, “Maybe we should learn a foreign language.”

“What for?” the other replies. ” That guy knew four of them, and a fat lot of good it did him.”
