Words With Friends, Swedish Edition

I was chatting to one of my Swedish colleagues about this inter-Scandinavian rivalry I’ve just discovered. Previous to this discussion, I thought I was so cultured and educated because I could recognize the Swedish flag. (Kidding. Well, mostly kidding.)

Swedish Colleague: For instance as a Swede, if there’s someone speaking Finnish, from Finland, you can just tell ‘em to speak Swedish instead cause they learned it in school, and it also proves our superiority, of course.

Meg: Americans do that all the time abroad. WHAT? SPEAK ENGLISH!!! EVERYONE MUST SPEAK ENGLISH!!!

Swedish Colleague: Yeah, but it’s not the same, cause it’s pretty pointless to learn Swedish compared to English. Thus we’ve owned Finland harder than English has the rest of the world.
