Overheard in Paddy Reilly's, Fribourg

Was in there last night for an after-work swift couple and there was a group of 3 (2 guys, 1 girl) speaking English in the smoking room. Wasn't anyone here perchance? Just curious, as I know virtually all the native English speakers who go there, but these were new to me.

Edit: one guy was certainly from the USA (I know, as he mentioned more than once, ), the other guy was an Oz, I think. The girl I'm not sure.

Yes, I was eavesdropping.

Why didn't you just say hi last night?
It was an Irish pub after all and most people are friendly after a couple pints!

I'm shy...

Nah, I didn't want to butt in and was chatting to my mates anyway.
