Or just a little competence.
Oh, the fail, the fail – or as Henry Higgings would have it:

A woman is driving alone across country when she sees a Navajo woman standing by the side of the road. Since she is lonely for some company, she stops and asks the Navajo woman if she would like a ride. The Navajo woman gets in the car without a word. After a few minutes the driver notices that the Navajo woman has been observing everything in the car, still without speaking a word.
Finally the Navajo woman speaks. She says “what’s in paper bag?” The woman, looking down at a brown paper bag on the console next to her responds, “It’s a really good bottle of wine and I got for my husband.”
The Navajo woman thinks for a moment and responds….”Good trade.”
