This one time I was at this restaurant in this general area of Montéal:
And my friend had asked me to test out this audio French phrasebook for the iPhone and I was like, “Sure, okay”
So I’m eating my lunch and— you know I’m rather proficient in French— so that’s what I used for the vast majority of my stay, but I digress… I flip through the phrasebook when I hear my waiter walking up. That’s when I look at my phone and see it has “I need some condoms” prominently displayed on the screen.
So I went to hit the menu button quickly
But my finger slipped in the haste
And hit the “Say it” button.
And this chipper voice rang out a resounding sentence: « J’ai besoin de préservatifs »
And the waiter kind of gave me this look like this:
Except less flirty and more « VrMan? MDR. »
And so then after I paid for my meal, I got the receipt back and on the tray under the receipt was a wrapped condom, neatly placed just for me.
I didn’t know wether to feel mortified or to laugh but I did both.
Obviously this is Sushi etiquette and not Sashimi etiquette ;3
