OK so im at work (im a customer service rep) I work with like 15 other people and were all in the same area in our little cubicals.
So this lady next to me(that no so smart and very rude person) she gets a call from a person that asked for a spanish interpreter. Instead of just calling are designated line for getting an interpreter she decides to ask can you speak any english. The person replies no i can not.
So she puts the person on hold and calls over to the interpreter line. So while shes on hold waiting for one and has her phone on mute she decides to make a comment.
"How were you able to say you cant speak english if you cant". I just shut my mouth. If i said anything i would have been rude! Im in a cranky mood today.
So i IM one of my other coworkers and say i know your laughing and think her comment is funny but i think its rude. He goes whatever.
So i said how the hell would you feel if you only spoke a different language other then English.
He responds, IF YOU LIVE IN ANOTHER COUNTRY FOR A PERIOD OF TIME LEARN THE FUKEN LANGUAGE.
So i said and if you knew anything you would know that English is one of the hardest languages to learn!
He goes whatever then go back to mexico.
I was like that was a racist fuken comment.
My SO SPEAKS SPANISH AND UMM HELLO HIS DAD IS FROM PUERTO RICO. Spanish speaking people come from many different places. Some are Columbia, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Spain, ETC!
UGH! im just fuken pissed!
