    Angry English Language First In America Dammit!!!!

    I am soo pissed right now. I went to my local bank drive thru and it was closed due to some problem(the drive thru)..well there was a sign on each of the drive through stations explaining what the problem was. Not in English, or English and Spanish..but just fucking Spanish!!! nothing in English! I had to go in and ask what was up and of course I get some woman who can barely speak English herself and can not only not explain the problem, but also could not explain why the signs outside were only in Spanish! For chrissakes this is fucking Ohio not Oaxaca! I Feel like sending a bitch letter to the bank..except they would probably just say I am some kind of 'bigot' or something..plus they would probably not even read it since it would only be in English! ARRRRGGGHHH!!!! USBANK sucks ASS!!!!
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    Damn!! That is the problem you would have at most fast food places here but not at the bank. That's mind boggling.

    I am all for multilingualism but ENGLISH is the official language of the United States.

    I have no problem with people speaking their native language at home. However, what REALLY grates my cheese is bilingual voting. To vote, you must be a citizen; to be a citizen, you must speak English. So why do you need two languages????? Not to mention the fact that if you don't speak enough english to be able to read someone's name & push a button, how the FUCK could you possibly even know what issues you're voting on???

    Yes, I would have definitely complained but was there anyone there that could understand you? I am not being facetious. I am serious.

    Soj - do you know anyone who speaks another language, preferably something obscure like Lithuanian or Swahili. Get them to write an outraged letter to the manager of the bank branch and add a PS in English demanding a reply within 7 days or you will take the matter to Head Office.
