  Henry counts to two.
by ATXtraveler

Remember that in foreign countries, your hand symbols are not always the same.

In America, sticking your thumb up in the air means that you like whatever you are currently enjoying. Giving someone the thumbs up sign means you are having a good time.

In Germany however... this is how you order another mass of beer.

More importantly, if you stick your index finger in the air, that means you would like 2 beers, since the thumbs up sign is the number one when counting in German.

Henry quickly found out after raising his finger that this was the most effective way to get 2 more frosty beverages sent his way!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
