Thanks Judy =)

This could also happen at a drive-in fast-order place, unfortunately!


By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND TENJOOBERRYMUDS...


In order to continue getting-by in America (our home land), we all need to
learn the NEW English language! Practice by reading the following
conversation until you are able to understand the term 'TENJOOBERRYMUDS'.

With a little patience, you'll be able to fit right in with the growing trend!!!

Now, here goes...

The following is a telephone exchange between a hotel guest and
Room-service:

Room Service (RS): 'Morrin. Roon sirbees.'

Guest (G): 'Sorry, I thought I d ialed room-service.'

That's with anything, anywhere you have to call to get customer service, especially credit card services. I always always have to ask for an english speaking person. My mother was japanese so I usually can understand what people are saying but its getting worse these days. But that was trully funny, I understood by the end. LOL Thanks for keeping me laughing.

One time I was on the phone to vista print going over with one of them about why I got charged for something I didn't ask for. I kept repeating myself saying" pardon me" hung up then soon after that I was sent this survey from them, I stated yeah the guy needs to slow down so I can understand him. I was nice but I wanted to say" Oh for goodness sakes man" LOL

HollyJ:

Hey James,

Have you ever tried to talk to anybody at Dell Computers. They talk just like that. It drives me crazy.

Terri:

The thing is it used to be occasionally you would get this...now it is too often.
To travel and have difficulty understanding is one thing, but to call for service or whatever and get someone in a foreign country talking like that is very annoying!!! If you are here legally and have jobs, businesses, all kinds of wonderful benefits, that is great. IF you are here illegal and have our jobs, own a business and get our benefits, then shame on our leaders!!!!

Here is what is difficult- trying to understand them on the telephone:)

wendy:

This remind's me of Andy Kaufman from the show"Taxi"in the 80's.He played a guy named Latka from a small country(it was a fictious country)and he alway's said"thank you very much"but with a thick and funny accent.I know i'm risking everyone's wrath here but not all american's speak english.Plus when we american's travel out of the country the first thing we ask the local's is"do you speak english"and get rattled when they don't.

Mary:

I think to have any job in AMERICA you should have to SPEAK ENGLISH,sorry but that is my personal opinion and I THINK I am still allowed to have that in this free nation.; though now day I am not so sure.
