View Full Version : A real bouncy-type story that just happened

I was at the Chinese restaurant around the corner, picking up take out for me and a coworker. I've been going to this place for over a decade, because the food is good and the people who own it are really nice. There aren't many places left where I can get lunch for under $5, and this is one of them.

Anyway, they were packed today. The woman in front of me in line was having some kind of language issue with the lady working the register. She turned to the waiting customers and said, loudly, "They need to learn to speaka de English". I said to her, "Well, it is a Chinese restaurant". She had nothing else to say.


What makes this not a bouncy (other than the fact that it really happened) is that the woman who made the insulting comment was black. No white DUmmie would ever talk back to a black woman, especially a tall woman wearing a Detroit Medical Center employee id.

Couldn't you have leapt out of the bushes at her, or something?

No, but most of them laughed.

Not a bouncy because you didn't begin the story with "So,".

I dont see anything wrong with saying what she said, they should speak english well.

I consider it rude to say that about someone in front of them, as if they are not there, especially when you are in their establishment. If she was having so much trouble understanding the counter help that she felt the need to be insulting about it, then she could go to another restaurant.

Agreed.

Well then rude i must be, sorry ody I agree with you on most things but if you are here and open a business its THEIR job to make themselves understood not the other way around. I refer you to rule #1 The customer is always right and rule number #2 if the customer is wrong see rule number 1.

The people at the restaurant are not that difficult to understand, at least the ladies who work the phone and the register. When they first opened, though, they hired a black woman to handle the phone and register, but their English is better, now. The people working there said nothing to the rude customer.
