I've been here for several years now, so I'm used to ze ax-an français. I find it very charming, it's sweet really no matter how badly they butcher English. But today, for some reason, (Fatigue + Sugar overload + Overworking + Caffiene overload), I couldn't stop giggling during the conference call going on next to me.
I was trying to work. I swear. But Cockney + French = too much. Every time they started talking, I burst into tears. Here are some gems from the conversation I just eavesdropped on:
Cockney : "Allew, eez everbody ear?"
Frenchy : "euuuuh oui, yessss, hi am ear."
Cockney: "Ok, groit, oy think wear ohwl ear."
Frenchy n°2: "Ay, euu, I just come too. Sorry for ze late."
Cockney: "Sole roit. weave jost started."
Frenchy: "Av you looked ze baz?"
Frenchy: "Ze baz, av you look it?"
Frenchy: "You know, ze base.. wiz ze, euuhhh, ze informations...ze baz..."
Cockney: "......" (breathes deeply) "....."
