Today in line for lunch, two guys standing behind me were talking real loud in some Asian language. The thing that got me most was that it seemed to be right in my fucking ear and the mother fuckers were right on my ass. Normally, it is loud, but these two guys speaking whatever fucking language that was so obnoxiously in public really irks the shit out of me.

For starters, no one, other than them and the like, know what the fuck they are saying. That shit alone makes me intensly uncomfortable being around them. Second, it is almost like a way they differentiate themselves from everyone else who only speak English. It's like even though we are part of the same fucking organization, they gotta retain the sensation that they can be different while they are on the job. You aren't even supposed to fucking speak any language other than English unless it is for official purposes.

Thinking back on it, if it weren't for the fact in the back of my mind that any little slip up could get you into a lot of trouble here, I would have probably gotten into a huff with em. IN summary, if you don't got the courtesy to speak the common language of this country in public, fuck you.

Yes I believe that would have gotten in a huff with them. Thoroughly.

I'm on the other end of the stick because I'm a linguistic minority in this city, so I'm the asshole speaking English loudly and demanding to be served in English when greeted in French.

Your situation is different because it's in the army and there's regulations, but there's nothing inherently wrong with two people speaking their own language to each other. If neither of them can communicate as well in English, why stifle their conversation with it? Loudness is rude though.

I love it when I hear someone talking in Japanese and I will recognize something like the word nine. Then I will feel the instant need to tell them that i recognized the word nine! But I never do, and spend the next 15 minutes wishing I hadn't messed up Japanese in first year uni and dropped it. Now whenever anyone asks me what language I am doing with international studies I have steer the conversation to the fact i'm also doing business.

but no i hate ugly languages and Chinese sucks. fuck them vissario! I assume it was Chinese or you are just complaining about nothing. Chinese is so annoying.

Sometimes I get annoyed with certain sounds in foreign languages. I don't know why, but something about certain sounds just irks me. Other times, I find them really interesting.

I guess it's the same for English, though.

You're being a little bitch and you don't have to be a liberal to think so.


Did you know you can have an emotional reaction and not have to be able to justify it logically? Ok, some people were yip yapping in another language and you got annoyed. Thats fine, you don't need to make up some supremely retarded bullshit argument to try and justify your getting annoyed.

There is a whole host of things that get on my nerves for no good or rational reason. But yeah, doesn't mean society should cater to it.

If it was Korean or Chinese, they were speaking loud just because the people who speak those languages like to speak them loud, even in their native language habitat.
