A Swiss guy, visiting the U.S., pulled up at a bus stop where two locals were waiting.
“Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?” he asked.
The two Yanks just stared at him.
“Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?” he tried. The two continued to stare.
Other than a glance at each other, there was still no response.
“Hablan ustedes Espanol?”
The Swiss guy gave up and drove off. The first Yank turned to the second and said, “Y’know, maybe we should learn a foreign language.”
“Why?” the other replied. “That guy knew four languages, and it didn’t do him any good.”
