I’d like a room in your hotel, please.

Somewhere in France this really happened.

An English lady walked into the city hall and asked:

“Have you got a room for the night, please ?”

First of all, the lady in the city hall wasn’t sure what to think.

Then, of course, she realized… on the wall outside, it was written “Hotel de Ville”!

  1. I have to admit that French is a funny language sometimes…
    When I was a child, I was always wondering why such and such things were called this or that way…
    Sometimes it seems that words have been especially chosen to sound really serious…
