Coworker:  Hey.  (says something indecipherable)

Me:  Huh?

Coworker:  What?  You don't know?  (says it again)

Me:  I totally don't know what you're trying to say.

Coworker:  Awww c'mon...(takes a swig of orange juice, looking at me expectantly)

me: Are you trying to say Orange in Mandarin?

Coworker:  That's what I said.  (says that indecipherable thing again)

Me:  No, it's (Orange in Mandarin)

Coworker:   ?  (Says something closer but not quite)

Me:   (Whips out phone and open Google Translate) No... see?  (says Orange in Mandarin to the phone)

Phone:  Orange!

Coworker: (tries to say it to the phone)

Phone:  Meeting!

Coworker: (Tries again)

Phone:  Alley!

Coworker:  That phone is defective.
