So I was in a pizza shop ordering, well a pizza. And whilst I'm waiting the lovely lass behind the counter offers me a pint while I wait. Of course I partake, and of course I finish the beer before the pizza is ready. So of course I want another pint because...well, why not.

The problem is the girl is Italian, speaks no English and I no parlo Italiano. So I don't want to just shout at her like some caveman in English, "Hey you, get can you get me another pint." So I'm trying to read the name tag on her blouse, but as you well might know, name tags are hung right where the **** are. So here I am trying to sort out her name, and she catches my eye wondering around her upper regions. So I have to go thirsty and this girl thinks I'm some sort of pervert.

Name tags are dumb, there has got to be a better way...

Well look at it this way, Jake. She could have been a local.

You: So, where are you from?

Her: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch!

Point to the glass and say "Una birra?"

Just get her attention and point to the empty glass. Say "One more, please?" in the language of your choice.

People aren't retarded.

Hope this helps. ~from a guy living in a non-English speaking country.

I suspect Jake just like staring at boobs.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I have a way to get around name tags. I ask the person their name! Works great except with the people that can't hear.

Or except when you don't speak the same language.

I suppose I could've whipped out my handy smartphone with Google translate...if I'd only had a smartphone..D'oh!

Hold your empty glass up and point to it. :) No translation required! How long have you been drinking beer anyway?! Rookie! :)

Grab her bewb and hold the name tag still so you can read it.
They're not as uptight about that stuff in Europe.
