Ordering my food in Russian. I think my attempts in Polish and Lithuanian were of a similar standard. The Russian sales assistants are very good and don't ask many questions, or perhaps I've just eaten at enough of these restaurants now to be able to answer all the questions before they are asked. I don't know what the Teletubby noise in the background is but I have heard it in all Russian McDonald's premises, especially in the mornings.
