Hallo Hundt!

It was a summer afternoon in Hamburg, Germany. A gorgeous brunette was walking her German Shepherd along  Alstor Lake.  I had just learned hundt meant dog in German, so I couldn’t hold back from saying “Hallo Hundt!” The woman, once bouncing along the lake walk, was now staring me down as she power walked past.

Then, my friend who was fluent in German broke it to me by saying “Grim. You idiot. You just said 'hello bitch.'”
