A few days ago, President of Ukraine - Victor Yanucovich was given some basic English conversation training before his visit in Washington and meeting with President Barack Obama...
The instructor told Victor Yanucovich:
-When you shake hand with President Obama, please say: "How are you?".
- Then Mr. Obama would say:"I am fine, and you?"
- Now, you should say:"Me too".
- Afterwards we, translators, will do the work for you."
It looks quite simple, but the truth is...When Victor met Obama, he mistakenly said: "Who are you?" (Instead of "How are you?".)
Mr. Obama was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor: "Well... I'm Michelle's husband, ha-ha..."
Then Victor Yanucovich replied "Me too, ha-ha...."
