Reference Question of the Day

Sometimes the best reference questions are the ones I barely even answer:

Lady: "How do you spell 'chauvinist'?"

Me: *spells it for her*

Lady: "Thanks. I used to know that word soooooo well."

Me: *raises eyebrow*

Lady: "Now, the phrase 'voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir.' I know what it means. I just don't know how to spell the 'ce soir' part."

Me: *spells it for her*

Lady: "You know, I knew that phrase even before the song came out."

Me: *raises eyebrow again*

Lady: "I once dated a man from Canada and he said that phrase to me one day. I didn't know what it meant, but I found out soon after. When I saw him again, I slapped him right in his face."

Me: *raises both eyebrows* *eyebrows freeze that way forever* *never needs Botox*

I love my job.
