Back in the 90s, this is how I learned all about the secrets of working from home…

Tomasz: You know what the funniest thing about Europe is?

Tora: What?

Tomasz: It’s the little differences. I mean, they got the same stuff over there that they got here, but it’s just – it’s just there it’s a little different.

Tora: Example.

Tomasz: All right. Well, you can walk into a cafe in Amsterdam and “work from home”. And I don’t mean just with like a wired connection, I’m talking about proper WiFi. And in Paris, you can “work from home” at McDonald’s. And you know what they call a FCC Approved WiFi Hotspot in Paris?

Tora: They don’t call it a FCC Approved WiFi Hotspot?
Tomasz: Nah, man, they got the EC system. They wouldn’t know what the hell a FCC Approved WiFi Hotspot is.

Tora: What do they call it?

Tomasz: They call it a “Wee Fee ‘otspot.”
Tora: A “Wee Fee ‘otspot.”

Tomasz: That’s right.
Tora: What do they call Dial-up?

Tomasz: Dial-up is Dial-up, but they call it “Le Dial-up”.

Tora: “Le Dial-up.” [laughs] What do they call AirPort?

Tomasz: I dunno, I didn’t go into an Apple Store. But, you know what they put on Home Routers in Holland instead of WiFi?

Tora: What?

Tomasz: Cables.

Tora: God damn!

Tomasz: I seen them do it, man, they really drown them in those wires!

Tora: That’s some weird stuff.
