Ships passing in the night

Passing as a native

I’m again in Denmark for a few days, to visit our office there. It is very interesting to be somewhere where people automatically assume I’m a native and start talking to me in a language that I can’t understand at all. When I react in English, most are visibly taken aback, which is kind of fun but also adds unnecessary confusion to the interactions.
