I Know My Limits

"I'm a little worried about meeting this girl about her apartment."
"Why's that?"
"I don't speak Italian, and her English isn't that good. Here, read this."
"Yeah. Rachel, she totally just ran that message through Babelfish."
"How do you know?"
"See how there's a random D with an apostrophe, and the vocab, grammar, and idioms are all really weird? That's what it looks like when you just run a translation through without correcting it."
"..."
"Look, I don't do it often, so stop your judging."
