Wednesday Wordage, Lost in Translation edition

The local Home Depot MegaSuperUltraStore has a cheerful bulletin board near their front entrance, with photos of some of their staff who can help you if you don't speak English.  Beneath each faux-polaroid of a smiling staffer, there's a printout of their name and some info, e.g. "Roberta--Yo hablo Espanol!"  There's about a half dozen, all speaking Spanish, until you get to the last one (who I will give an alias):  "Susan--Yo hablo Francais."
