Getting on the Vienna Metro station was like walking through a picket line. I must have been handed several pamphlets and many people wanted to shake my hand. I actually pretended not to speak English just to get them to leave me alone.
"I no speak ah... you English."
"I no work here."
"Jag tala inte engleska."
"You... ah... smell of... des-per..ation!"
One woman said, "Aw... bless his heart...!" :(
