Translation please!

Having lived in the New York for a fair while now I’m occasionally called upon by my American colleagues for my transatlantic translation services.

Today a thoroughly confused and bemused Jose stopped by my cube after a newly transplanted British co-worker sent him an email asking “how are you fixed?”

“I’m assuming he’s not asking me personal questions about whether I'm circumcised?” Jose queried with a smile.

Ha!! Love it. “No, Jose, he’s asking whether you have time in your schedule for a meeting.”
