When you have a Lithuanian family around to view the house, and seize the moment to try out some phrases you learnt once from a waitress in a restaurant!

...When you're off on holiday for two weeks and are hoping to find lots of YKYALNW posts in your inbox when you come back :oD seriously fellow language nerds, I LOVE this thread :oD hehe.

...When you hope that your shyness and social awkwardness doesn't prevent you from practicing the Greek that you've been studying the past few months in preparation for said holiday!

...you overhear Spanish in your local supermarket, and you wonder if it's from Spain or
Latin America, so your ears start flapping for clues, and you are disappointed when they
move away. You don't quite have the brass neck to follow them down the supermarket aisle
for further clues......but then you try to remember what they were buying in case that
gives a clue...

...when while playing Counter Strike or Call of Duty with a friend you try to read the supposedly arabic graffiti on the
walls and get annoyed when you notice that most of them are either complete gibberish or written from left to right
with only isolated forms of the letters and when you then stay in one area of the map where you can hear arabic
radio broadcasts as part of the background audio.

You analyze the bilingual signs at your workplace to learn Spanish vocabulary and grammar
so you can try using it on your co-workers.
