Me at the library counter, casually:

"Books on voting in Swiss elections, please."
Librarian: "In what language?"
Me: "Nah, doesn't matter that much."
Librarian (very calm): "In Chinese?"
Me: "Maybe not Chinese." (Not that there are many books on Swiss votes, in Chinese, in a Swedish library.)
Librarian (continues, still tranquil but amused): "In Romanian?"
Me: "Not in Romanian..."
Librarian: *tries not to smile*
Me: "Ok, fine, foremost Russian, English, French and Swedish."
