ok here
The earliest version of English was Anglo-Saxon, a proto-Germanic language. Although only about 5,000 Anglo-Saxon words survive in Modern English, they are some of the most commonly used ones.English developed by borrowing words from cultures it came in contact with. For instance, Greek and Latin were traditionally the languages of high culture and ‘classical’ education. English adopted many Latin and Greek words, and many of them form our medical and legal vocabulary.In 1066, the Normans invaded England, and subsequently French became the official language – certainly among the elite at court. Roughly half the words in Modern English are borrowed from French.

there...eng doesnt come exactly from french but most of its words do...

I work in a call centre, for readers digest.

Hint - dont yell at people taking calls. Nothing is ever their fault... unless you know for sure it is, otherwise, ur just some twat we make fun of at dinner and do nothing for.

OH, and NEVER ask to speak to a manager. They never do anything to help, we usually stand behind them, telling them what to say, lol

Pretty handy. Even if it changes, it gives me ideas for tricks to try when "0" doesn`t work.

I thought this one was funny though:
