21. What part of ... don't you understand?

A travel blog entry by mlloyd

... first obstacle seemed to be that the clerk didn’t understand that we were talking about a credit card. He took my Visa, issued by one of the smaller banks in the US, typed on his keyboard and squinted at the screen. After much tapping and squinting (maybe he needed glasses), he finally announced, “We don’t have any access to this bank’s systems.”

“You don’t need to talk to the bank, you need to talk to ...

17. It's a dog's life
