"Surely, you can speak common english, yes? We won't get anywhere without proper communication. Please either speak english, dutch, french, japanese or write down what you want to say, my brain is starting to hurt."

In a swift motion, the busker removes your phone from your pocket and places it in your hand.

"My phone? Do you want me to call Lee and pass you over?"


If the answer is moo, John calls Lee and passes him the cow-man. If the answer is moo moo, John will call Lee anyway to ask for advice.

"My phone? Do you want me to call Lee and pass you over?"

Since the busker answers negatively, you call Mr. Lee and ask for advice.

"Mr. Lee? I'm not sure I know what your friend is trying to tell me here. He's trying to get me to use the phone."

"Well, son, I wish I could help you, but I can't say I can make heads or tails of most of what he's getting at when I talk to him. Sorry about that. But he's a good guy. You should listen to him."

"Trust me, sir, I'm trying my best here. I'll be in touch."

John ends the call with Lee, and turns to the busker again.

"Okay, baby steps. Do you want me to do something with my phone? Do you want me to hand you the phone? "

If the answer to the second question is Moo, hand him my phone.

((this is a really trippy game of charades))

"Okay, baby steps. Do you want me to do something with my phone? Do you want me to hand you the phone? "

Your new friend nods at the first question, shakes its head at the second.

"Okay, do you want me to call the police? Trey and luz?"

This must be punishment from Lee, john thought, he must have chosen this particular friend because he knew I wouldn't get anywhere

HMR stands for Hazardous Materials Requisition, not Horrible Massive Ruination, though I can understand how one could get confused.
God help us if we have to agree on pizza toppings at some point. There will be no survivors.

"Okay, do you want me to call the police? Trey and luz?"

The cowman moos a single time at both queries.

"Riiight....So you want me to call both the police and Trey and Luz. Like, call Trey and Luz and ask them where they are, then call the cops and send them over there?"

It moos at the first half, then begins vigorously shake its head when you get to the second part.

((Oh god. This is like that time some German Tourist tried to ask me where the icecubes were.))

"OKay, so no calling the cops over there. So, we just, go to where Trey and Luz are? Then, why did you want me to call the cops, anyway? Could you write that down? Can you write or speak english? you seem to understand it well enough."

John let's his arms sag by his sides

"No, really, what do you want me to do? I mean, I know you can speak english. You clearly said 'I say' earlier. This is just you and mister Lee punishing me, isn't it?"

"Well fine, be that way."

John takes out his phone and dials Luz's number.

"Heya Luz, it's John here. How's it going?"
