No Speak English

I hate these people.

“Sorry, no speak English.”

As an immigrant myself, this is despicable. No one cares if you speak well or not, just say something. Something broken is better than nothing useful. The United States doesn’t force anyone to learn English. But if you’re here, just try learn some basics.

I know you speak English. You clearly understood my request and proceeded to act like an asshole. If you can’t speak, don’t speak one damn word of English. Keep it for someone else. Yell at me in Chinese or Italian or whatever language other than English.

Next time, I’ll leave without paying. What, “Pay now!” you yell? What language is that? It can’t be English, since you don’t speak it. Sounds very familiar, but sorry, I don’t understand.
