That's OK, you should hear a conversation at home between my children 
and me. It would make a franco-english canadian cringe...

Now, the funniest part was when I started here some 20 years ago, and I 
went to the secretary and asked for a rubber... She sent me to the stock 
room, who sent me to someone else. It took me 3 stops to realize they 
were having a good time at my expense...
