Thrilling breakfast conversation where the waitress insisted on speaking German. Don't make the poor German speak English just to get a coffee.

@tedu I can imagine that being a non-German speaking Tourist in Germany must be hard.

Most people speak at least some English, however, they are afraid to make mistakes so they don't speak at all *sigh*

@_xhr_ oh, this is in Prague. She knew English very well too, but was trying to be helpful to a "German" tourist.

@tedu Haha, so she thought you were a German tourist? :)

@_xhr_ yeah, it's not really a problem, just a weird dynamic.
