Eavesdropping with Matt (Episode Sixty-Five: Home Countries)

Dedicated to the man who sat next to me on the plane today, and to the two women on our plane were having a rough time finding their seats, because their English was not great.

Man next to me: Go back to your home country! Am I right?

Me: Maybe this is their home country.

A couple minutes later we had this excellent exchange:

Man next to me: I can't believe the flight attendants are having such a hard time talking to them. Doesn't anyone on the plane speak Spanish?

Me: Those ladies don't speak Spanish. They were speaking Hindi.

Yes, that's right. And there's so much more waiting for you if you read earlier posts from Eavesdropping With Matt.
