I was in Berlin with a long-time German client who speaks perfect English.

At dinner, I asked him to tell the waiter I’d have the filet.

He said to the waiter, in English, “He’ll have the filet.”

“I could have done that,” I laughed.

He said, “I forgot to revert back to German!”

The waiter said, “No problem, I’m from Texas.”
