Icon cause it's my best snuggly one. <3
Yeaaaah. This was just so stupid I had to write about it. XD An actual journal entry for once, woot.
So I was having lunch at this Italian restaurant, and I just got out of the bathroom. And there's this old man who is just perplexedly staring at the door in front of him. This door has "Uomini" written on it, directly above the word "Men". On the wall next to it it also says Men, along with the little man stick figure on men's bathrooms, plus presumably the same thing written in Braille under it.
And as I walk by, this man stops me to ask "Do you know what 'Uomini' means?" I did a double take and stared at this living fountain of ignorance myself, wondering whether I should stroke his ego and tell him I don't know what it means, or beat him over the head with a frying pan pulled out of hammerspace, like they do in the cartoons.
Finally, I answer politely that "I don't speak Italian but this is the men's restroom."
His response? "Oh, is this Italian?"
I decided to walk away at that point. His stupidity might have been contagious.
