When Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague announced the U.K.'s plans to help diplomat response in foreign countries on Wednesday, he also spilled a couple interesting tidbits about what crazy calls the U.K. foreign embassies get.
Not only do travelling Brits call them for help with ants in a Florida rental home, but they even call for Christmas lunch recommendations in Spain, help with erecting a chicken coop in Greece, and directions after satellite navigation systems fail, the AP reports.
"Our commitment to good relations with our neighbors does not, I am afraid, extend to translating 'I love you' into Hungarian, as we were asked to do by one love-struck British tourist," Hague said.
Sigh. It seems true love is just another "ludicrous request" for the British government.
