overheard – in mitte

scene: couple paying for bill at bar

waiter: 15 euros zusammen
man 1, looks at man 2 and puts down a 10er
man 2, peering into his wallet, looking skeptical

man 2: i’m broke (english with german accent and a pout)

waiter, patting man 2 on the shoulder: but you look good!

man 2, with a clearly limited english vocab, had no clue what the waiter said. and me cracking up loudly nearby didn’t make him feel better. the waiter tried to explain in german but it wasn’t really funny in translation. actually it’s not really that funny two days later either…

moral of the story: be wary of dates who only know how to say "i’m broke" in english. i bet he does that all the time…
