Bought an Emma Marrone ticket for next year... Oh aye, bank only blocked my card because of the purchase... Which is fair do's because I bought it on an Italian ticket site, is that why I'm whinging... No, the reason I'm whinging is to unblock the little sod I've literally had to sit with my phone for 1hr an 13mins!!! Over an hour to unblock a card!?!

I can’t cope with most Latin-based languages in music.
My head keeps hearing snippets of words that vaguely make sense, and then spends the next 10 minutes trying to translate the one line of lyrics..
This is mostly why I listen to Japanese music whilst coding, but ... those little snippets are certainly being filed away. I’ve started to recognise similar lyrics. I couldn’t begin to translate them, but my head’s started going “ooooh, you know that bit from that other song!!”

It’s rather distracting.

I might have to switch to Korean, or something...

Our card has a few online settings, by default it will automatically decline overseas online transactions and you need to go on the bank's website to enable it and you can set it for 1 hour or 1 day etc - pretty useful feature in this day and age

Yeah, I was like that, but made myself learn a bit... I have a few books which I've read over the last couple of years, and even did a beginners course at Durham Uni... I give my Italian a run out in Padova, and I managed okay.

The thing is, when it comes to their music, I can follow most of the lyrics as they seem to be said a lot slower (Usually) then if you were talking to a native in a normal conversion... If your not listening, you'll just hear babble!

Probably the same when someone learns English, people will learn the Queens english [aka posh], then when they are here and find themselves in the wild, I bet they think "Do these guys speak English here or what?"

One thing I do regret is not learning a bit of Thai before I went to Thailand, even if it was just simple stuff... Made stuff like ordering food a bit of a chew, having to point at the menu and all that, and its a chew for the waiting staff, bless them... One of my mates got a monk on when the lass didnt understand is order for a JD and coke, proper dropping his toys, and when he turned around and said "She wants to learn some English doesnt she"... I was like "Nooooo, we are in Thailand, her country, so we should've learnt Thai you fucking pleb"
