Years ago I managed an international program that deployed to parts of French speaking Africa. Our one help desk person who spoke French was out, so the man on duty used early Google Translator (this was maybe 2007 or) to provide instructions. We get something about questioning what a waitress has do to with this problem (server = waitress).
Disappointing or comforting that your coworkers didn't jump in the opportunity with that softball. Are they all female?
