My German Language Skill

I went to a cosmetic shop and browsing around.  A salesgirl approached me.

Salesgirl: [In German] Can I help you?
Me        : [In German] Do you have...
Salesgirl: OK, in English.
Me        : [thinking] is my German really that bad?

I've though about what would I do in a situation like that, and my reply would be:

"Wie bitte?? Entschuldigen Sie, aber ich spreche nur Spanisch und Deutsch."

I intend to act that way to force me and them to speak German, even if it means taking 30 times longer to buy bread...

You could try replacing "Indonesisch" by "Spanisch" ;).
