An American and an Englishman

An American visiting England asks the hotel concierge for the elevator.

The porter looks a bit confused for a moment and then smiles as he realizes what the man wants. "You must mean the lift!"
"No," the American replies. "If I ask for the elevator I mean the elevator."
"Well," the porter answers, "over here we call them lifts."
"Now listen," says the rather irritated American, "An America invented the elevator."
"Oh, right you are sir," the porter replies in a polite tone, "And an Englishman invented the language."
