language barriers

funny story
last night i went to barnes and nobel to pick up a latin dictionary and verb conjugation book. i didn't know where the foreign language section was, so i asked one of the booksellers where their foreign dictionaries were. he began to walk me over to the section and asked which language i needed. i told him "latin." and he said, "like in spain or south america."
ha ha ha ha ha
thankfully i have superb self control and did not laugh uproariously in his face. i told him i meant ancient latin and the proper section was found. i was quite amused for the rest of the evening.
i guess it really is a dead language.
