Word of the Day Simpati

Being nice doesn’t always work out – no matter what language you’re speaking.

I once heard an Israeli actress telling a radio host about an embarrassing incident that occurred shortly after she moved to the United States. To the best of my recollection, she wanted to thank someone famous for inviting her to a party and chose a condolence card instead, because it had the word "sympathies" on it and she wanted to convey that she thought he was a nice guy.
