Parlez-Vous Francais

Part of my job is to make property inspections. Today I was going to inspect 24 apartment units. My inspection started as normal as any other and the property manager accompanied me. About halfway through, we headed back to the leasing office to re-load on the unit keys. Then the manager introduced me to the maintenance man who would be my tour guide for the rest of my inspection. This is within the norm.

Then she says, “He speaks a little English.” Oh.

“His name is Fernando*.” I guess he won’t be impressed by my four years of high school French then.

And he has laryngitis. Peachy.

*Names have been changed to protect the innocent.
