Messing with people

I got a request at work this morning to submit my expense report. Nothing so unusual about that except it came from the European Financial Services wing of our company and it was written in German. My last name is German but I think the requestor has me confused with an employee in Germany who shares the first 4 letters of my last name.

So I sent her a reply back. The salutation was in Spanish. The body was in a mixture of Greek and German and the signing off part was in Portugese. That should mess with her mind a bit.

I sooooo love you for that! You made my night. But then again, I love you anyway for many other reasons, poppabear.

Yes, as a matter of fact, Terror Sauce sounds really good right now. I gave you that baked chicken recipe with the terror sauce as sort of a glaze, right?

Yes, I brought some into the office today and people are gobbling it up. I need to get you and Dan both a jar.

Lucky, spoiled co-workers. Oooh, I get to have a jar of Terror sauce? Hoooraay!! [big hugs]

By the way, did that person ever reply back to your email? It would be funny if they did reply.

IN German, yes. They appologized for sending it to the wrong person. Apparently they were unfazed by my multi dialect response.

Bwahahahaha! Multilingual replies are the best! I've used that tactic many a time. (There's a reason gnominclature refuses to watch the Mexican Santa Claus movie with me anymore. The first thirty minutes are a parade of Santa's slaves singing songs in all their native languages. >:D)

I could have thrown in a little Shawnee and really had them guessing I guess.

You realize, of course, that she'll send back her apologies in a mixture of Urdu and Tamil? (If you don't receive it, its because your mail filters accidentally deleted it.)

I got a nice reply back this morning in German saying it was indeed a mistake but that she appreciated me taking the time to be multi lingual in my reply. She had to get a couple co workers to help her translate.

Our business units are pretty well segregated. I don't think our European industries have a clue as to what our US industries are doing.
