WORD OF THE DAY
Funcionário = Employee
We have a remote to our gate that we use to take our puppy out and one day it stopped working. So I went to the doorman and tried to explain that the remote was not working or functioning properly. I couldn’t remember the word for “functioning” in portuguese (funcionamento). So I threw in the word funcionário which actually means employee in portuguese, needless to say the doorman did not understand what I was talking about.
