An American gets into a car….

and drives down the road in Lebanon on his way to see the local sights. He sees two men conversing on the side of this road.

“Gentlemen, do you speak English?”

The man on the right responds with a shake of the head, “No, sorry.”

“Do you speak any Spanish?”

“No, sorry” says the other.

“Do you speak any French?”

“No, so sorry” was the refrain.

“Do you speak any Italian?” was his last ditch effort.

“No, sorry.”

His eyes roll from frustration as he drives away from the two men.

“We really should start to learn other languages. Had we studied maybe we could have helped this fellow traveler, ” said Fadde to Jay.

“Nah. Poor guy knew four languages and how did it help him in this situation?”
