Today at the mall Customer Service desk a woman who works at one of the stores asked if she could use our computer to log into her email and print out a schedule her boss had sent. I moved the keyboard and mouse to the top of the desk, and she quickly logged in. I could still see the screen and was surprised that her home page looked much different than what I'm used to. It was in Hebrew.
The woman quickly printed out what she needed. In the meantime I started helping another customer, so I forgot to remind her to log out of her account before she left. It should have been intuitive for me to figure out where to click to exit, but the foreign lettering had me stumped for a couple of minutes.
Even after I logged out the Hebrew home page remained. I thought about it for a few minutes, then entered my user name and password in the boxes. When my account home page loaded I signed out and had the English version back.
