Superpower activation failure

I just called to try to make a reservation for the hotel I want to stay at during Christmas break (in January), and when the phone was answered, after I said, "Bone jer, Juh Voo-Dray Fair Ohn Re-zer-vah-si-own Poor John Vee A," I heard

"Men ah men ah men ah. Demain Men ah men ah men ah [eight o'clock] men ah [January]."

It was a near total comprehension failure. I felt like I'd fallen into another universe - one in which people think I can understand spoken French.

We also failed to get out of the house and off to the Cotswolds, as a 730 wake up was just too much Oh well. I guess it's the Serpentine for us today, then
