Sometimes Russians know English!!

I went shopping today. To get food for the flat. I left the flat with my sweety and kissed her goodbye. I walked to my favorite store that has lots of food items. I shopped and went to pay. After the girl rang all items up, I asked for two plastic bags. In Russia you do not get free plastic bags. You must buy them.

I asked the girl in my broken Russian, Packet (bag) I pointed and she looked at me. I said English from America. I asked again for packet.

Then she said: Oh, you want a bag! (in English) I just stood there dumb. She gave me 4 bags and I paid.

Sometimes the English language comes from the weirdest places. It surprises me now when I hear English spoken.

I love this country!
