    | Gothenburg, Sweden | Coworkers, Geography, Theme Of The Month

    (I work in the hotel department on a cruise line. A coworker and I are talking about me going to London to study.)

    Me: “I’m so glad I’m single. Would be awful to have a long distance relationship for three years.”

    Coworker: “I’m sure you’ll find a hot French guy there! I mean there are hordes of them there. You can just take your pick!”

    Me: “I’m not specifically after a French guy, and I didn’t know there were that many of them in London.”

    Coworker: “Sure there are, it’s LONDON! Where else would they be?”

    Me: “…In France?”

    Coworker: “But that’s where you’re going.”

    Me: “No, I’m going to London.”

    Coworker: “Yes and London is in France!”

    (I’m thinking she’s joking but she’s looking at me, dead serious.)

    Me: “London is in England.”

    Coworker: “No, it’s not. It’s the capital of France.”

    Me: “No, sweetie… Paris is the capital of France. London is the capital of England!”

    Coworker: “No… but… oh, yeah! But I’m sure you’ll find a French guy there anyway!”

    Me: *facepalm*
