So, I just spent like a half hour trying to explain purchasing a bus pass to a very sweet man of unspecified Asian descent (although from the name, I would hazard a guess at Chinese) who tried very hard to get his point across and understand mine but which was still one of the most unintentionally* frustrating conversations I have had in ages.

I don't blame him at all for not understanding, but this is why 'Common' is such a convention in Scifi/Fantasy. Can you imagine the Council of Elrond if everyone got stuck on the name of the One Ring?




*Notice I specificy UNINTENTIONALLY frustrating. We get plenty of people who call or come in and are intentionally frustrating. They can all just go to hell.
