Analyst: So what are the challenges small manufacturer's are facing?
Sales Manager ( French dude): Well, the matiyaa is important when it comes to these devices. I think great improvement can be made in the matiyaa.

A:(thinking): Matiya? what the hell is that? (aloud) why do you say that?
S. M: I just think more investment should be put in R&D of new matiya.

Analyst: Matiyaa...could you spell that please. You are breaking up.
S.M: (sniggers) I thought you are working for an American company. anyway, its spelt m.a.t.e.r.i.a.l.

Hehe..reminds me of this incident when I was in Canada. This French
woman at the movie ticket counter hands me a ticket and says something that I thought was spelt "Enzho yo jour". I go "Pardon me!" And she says it louder "ENZHO YO JOUR!" And I clarify "Sorry, I dont speak French!" She looks frustrated, comes closer to me and says "ENJOY...YOUR...SHOW!!" :)

Hahahaa. Was laughing about this since last night.

I was laughing even more on imagining the look of incredulity on your face, when he told you what he meant. Hehe.

I can understand what you went through PV.
Imagine, this French guy (who is the CEO of this huge company I'm calling) says, "za sikonecto maakit...blah blah"
I was like WAAAHAAAAATTTTT??!!!
He went quiet, probably analysing if I were an industrial spy or an analyst. Then continues, "za sikonecto maaakitt weeel grouuww".
I learnt my lesson once, so no more "pardon me"s. Anyways, I just HAD to know whatever THE HELL he was talking about and towards the end (like you did) I said, "Za..sorry, The line is kinda breaking up, could you spell that out for me?"
And he says "(Hmph) It eesss, za -ess, eee, ah, aal, eee, dee, you unduhshtand?"
Yessir! I understood, that when u said za sikonecto, you were talking about the 'sealed connectors' market, and it was your sultry voice which made me beg you to repeat it for me!!!
