Serviette

While on board the flight from Frankfurt to San Francisco, a flight attendant came by and handed me a drink. She then reached for something and passed it to me. "And here's a serviette." She did this in what sounded like a clear American accent.

Later in the flight, I stopped her and asked, "You're American, right?"

"Yes."

"Interesting. You used the word serviette rather than napkin, and that caught me by surprise."

"I'm an international flight attendant. That's what they taught me to say."

I know why. Do you?
