I have a friend who owns a company that does business in Poland. He reports the following exchange with the manager of his small Polish office:

MY FRIEND WHO OWNS A COMPANY THAT DOES BUSINESS IN POLAND: "Say, Malgosia, if the Pope dies, is the entire country going to shut down or something? I mean will there be a whole week of mourning or something?"

THE MANAGER OF HIS SMALL POLISH OFFICE: "I do not know what you mean."

MY FRIEND: "I mean, is everybody going to stay home from work for an entire week if the Pope dies?"

HIS MANAGER: "You mean I can have the day off?"

MY FRIEND: "Oh, never mind."
