This is going to be a post about me being very irritated with my current employment.
First, I feel that with my education level, my experience and my Military background, my current employment is beneath me.
But it is paying my bills.
Second, I do not take orders very well. I have no problem with listening and taking someones suggestions if their suggestions will benefit me, but I do not like orders.
I am a grown-ass man. You WILL not order me to do anything. I guess that is why I got out of the Army the first time. (Notice I said First time. I am currently in the Reserves. God help me.)
Third, and this is basically what this post is about....
If you want to work in this country and get your share of the "American Pie" speak the motherf$%^#&ing language!!
Granted, I do speak Spanish (pequito), Do not expect me to automatically switch to Spanish to suit you.
Or Swahili, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Arabic, Martian or whatever the hell you speak.
This is America. We speak English here. Bad English, but English none the less.
How far would I get in another country if I did not speak that Country's main language?
Or at least attempt to speak it?
I lived in Germany for 5 years and I can testify to the fact that if a person makes an effort to try to understand the culture and language of another country, that person will be greeted with open arms. (Yes I know a little German also.)
To me it is common courtesy to try to understand the people you have to live with, do business and interact with on a daily basis.
So why is it that people come here and automatically expect me (Or any Natural Born American) to accommodate them and their culture, religion, language, food, and whatever the hell else?
I don't want this to sound like a Republican Rant, but this sh*&t here pisses me off.
Tolerance can only go so far. If you cannot communicate with me and you expect me to give you a job or help you in any way, how in the hell am I supposed to give you a job or help you?
Oh, I forgot....
No Habla Inglis.
