Konnichiwa, Your Call Is Important To Us

Day 432 – September 26, 2012

Last night, our cable system ceased to operate. A helpful message appears on our television screen telling us to dial a certain phone number for assistance.

Since my lovely wife has better Spanish skills than I have, she took the phone and called for help.

The following is a sure sign you are in Peru…

This is a simulated transcript of a recording my lovely wife heard after she dialed the special number:

Press 1 if you would like to continue this call in Spanish.

Press 2 if you would like to hear this call in Japanese.

According to this website, Japanese immigrants began coming to Peru in the latter part of the nineteenth century.

I love learning something new.
