Two highway workers were busy working at a construction site when a big car with diplomatic license plates pulled up.
– Parlez-vous français? – the driver asks them.
The two workers just stared.
– Sprechen Sie Deutsch? – The two continued to stare at him.
– Fala português? – Neither worker said anything.
– Parlate Italiano? – Still no response.
Finally, the man drives off in disgust.
One worker turned to the other and said – Gee, maybe we should learn a foreign language… – What for? – That guy knew four of them and what good did it do him?
