    This was from a small mail group I'm in to find parts for cars.. A couple of people skim junkyards and pull anyhting that might make a profit, and then post what they find on our group...

    Here's the first post, my reply is below, followed by the two replies I received...


    I personally think I was SLIGHTLY out of line, but jeez. C'mon people. If you want to type the Engrish, then type in ENGLISH. You don't see me trying to post my broken ass German on some Deutcher site, do you?

    Like the black guy in Gone in 60 Seconds said.



    [Edit] sorry forgot one of the replies I received...[/Edit]

    All I know is, I fucking hate it when I go to a drive-thru or call customer service or anything like that and the person I'm speaking too can't speak one sentence without stuttering, mispronouncing or using wrong words because he/she doesn't have even a basic grasp of the English language.

    Why in holy hell would an employer place someone in a customer service position who can't speak English???!!! :bash:

    Dude half the people i call are like " No speaky engleeesh" it get so damn annoying, we actually have bi-lingual telemarketers to call these people. Thats pretty damn sad in two ways : 1. They cant speak our language. 2. Our company is so damn annoying ir wont even leave the poor foreign people alone. Oh well.

    im sure everyone here has in their past, someone in their family who came to this country from a foreign land in order to bring the family to america. unless you are native american or from the UK, someone in your family probably spoke broken english when they got here just so you and your ancestors could live in freedom and have a better life. :angry:

    i had a roomate in college.

    came from russia.

    couldn't speak a word of english.

    6 years later, he has a masters in Business and Economics, and can speak and write better than myself.

    I have no pity. If you come here, learn English. its not that fucking hard.
    nothing pisses me off more when people are running their mouths in some other language. its rude.

    Engrish is even worse, cuz its butchering it.

    i guess i have a different opinion because i come from a bilingual family, and have worked with people who arent that great at english. english happens to be one of the hardest languages to learn. its not like spanish or italian. anyway, its not realistic to expect everyone to learn a country's language before moving there. that could take years.

    Walking and talking in broken English til you learn better is one thing. Trying to sell a car on an E-Mail user group that is in ENGLISH that you weren't invited to in the first place is entirely another.

    And the three assholes that went off on me can suckle my nutsack. I'm so tired of bullshit.

    damn... why's everybody upset over some bullshit and for those who have a pet peeve for others who's english -actually, grammatical structure- is bad, there's other things far worse to become upset over...
    smoke a joint or drop an e pill and relax if you can't control your emotions and thoughts.......
    being asian myself, as well as bilingual, the shit is funny to me when i hear someone speaking english in such a manner but i don't fuckin' get pissed about it... it's a waste of fuckin' energy...
    i'd rather be pissed about some other shit..........
    IMO

    I agree with Gabe, and not with Jody... Jody- I think you got a little bit of what you deserved, honestly. My parents came here not knowing a single bit of English, but now they're flawless. No accents or anything. You can't expect everyone to perfect their English before they try to go about their everday lives though. It's just not feasible. Now if they don't make any attempt to improve, that's a different story. Not everyone can become 100% competent (to our daily standards) of using the English language- hell most people born here don't anyway- but they should at least try. That's expected- but ragging on someone just because they're trying to sell a car like anyone else and can't type properly... that's not cool. You don't know what kind of situation they're in.

    i disagree with you on one of your points. i think english is one of the easier languages to learn. i think the harder languages to learn are some of the asian languages and the middle-eastern languages. arabic is really hard yo. you try to pronounce that stuff. i just wanted to get my $0.02 in.
