Polyglot, PO'd

My daughter read me some aphorisms in various languages.

When she got to one in German, I couldn't understand some of the words.*

I asked her for the translation, which was "You should serve understanding and wisdom."

I replied, "I serve people who couldn't do my job if you held a gun to their heads."

*But I did correct her pronunciation. Pardon me -- gotta polish my "Head Girl" badge.
