Do You Speak English?

Had a funny thing happen playing $2/5 no-limit at the WSOP. For this to make sense you have to know that the whole world really does come to the World Series. You hear accents from all over.

I had been playing for four hours, and the guy on my right was there the whole time. During that span, I had not spoken.

The guy on my right ordered a coffee from the waitress, and a minute later he got a text and suddenly he had the look of someone who needed to leave the table to take care of an issue. He picked up a $1 chip, and I knew what was coming next. He was going to ask me to tip the waitress if she came with his coffee while he was gone. But before he asked me that, he asked, “Do you speak English?”

Okay, maybe it was only funny to me.

    Are you sure he didn’t say “Do you speak?”
