Do you not speak English??

Categories:

Nothing fries me worse than calling an American Company for some customer service and getting shot out to some foreign country and being forced to speak to someone who CANT EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH!!!  I just keep repeating myself over and over......I can't understand you put on someone who can speak English..."  I do not say anything else...period.  They ask me a question.....I say the same thing.  If I buy a computer here in a local store and then surprise surprise it doesn't work as it should and I call their "Customer Service" line.....I want to be able to speak to the person without having to jump around like a monkey trying to play charades over the phone.  I am so sick of it!!!  I paid good money for whatever isn't working like it should, I certainly paid enough that they should be able to give me an English speaking customer service representative.  *jumping down off my soapbox..but still pissed*

I hear ya, it's so annoying

I hear ya, it's so annoying to not be able to get any help because they don't speak english. I had a spanish speaking lady come for a job application the other night, and she mixed english and spanish together and thought I knew what she was saying! She had about 3 english words and 6 spanish ones all mixed together, and I had no clue. We got her application back yesterday - filled out just like she talks, part english and part spanish!

comcast cable does the same thing

you call them to get some answers about some issues I'm having and I cant understand a word they say to me.  It's aggravating when your already pissed off,  to call and get some person, who is usually Indian( at comcast anyway)  and I can barely understand them. This is soo bad for customer service.

Had an experience myself

Had an experience myself tonight with a stupid foreigner that answered the phone!!

First of all, I asked her if I'd pushed the right button for English vs. Spanish since I asked to speak to someone that spoke CLEAR ENGLISH!!

Second of all..she asked for my account number.  The reason WHY I called was because I wasn't receiving a bill!!

Giving her everything on the face of the earth including my address..my PIN number..the last FOUR of my SS# (GAWD..I hate when they use that as a pin...) she says, "I cannot access your account without an account number.."

DUH..and stupid freaking foreigners that first of all can't speak clear English...and are dumber than a box of rocks just reading off a menu......

I said, "Well...I don't have a bill..so I HAVE no account number to give you...but I'd like to just pay off my account...."

Then she puts me on hold...comes back to the phone and says, "Hello...your account number please??"

I freaking hung up!!

 

 

Amazing isn't it???

Some kinda sad when you can't call an American Company...in America...and speak English....the American language and be understood, or understand what is being said to you.  Frustrates the h*ll outta me I sympathize with you totally.  Sounds like a good company to pay off....and then write off for good!  lol 

This goes both ways...

I work for a call center were we get people calling that don't speak one word of english and get upset that I don't speak spanish! Well excuse the F^ck outta me, its not my fault that you were STUPID enough to come live in a country that doesn't speak your language. I speak english and sign language (ASL), how many languages do they think we should learn?

I'm tired of the whole Politically correct crap, that we're supposed to accepting of all immigrants legal or not! Screw that! I have absolutely no problem with someone coming here so long as they do so legally. I have a huge problem with someone sneaking into the country and getting government assistance, which many tax paying citizens can't even get! I don't care why they come here, they're criminals and should be treated as such.

Amen to that!

That whole illegal immigrants getting all this money from OUR taxes is BS.  Where is my share then?  My family has to work....pay taxes....get their own health care....buy their own food.....blah blah...get the picture?  Why shouldn't everyone?  Talk about discrimination....the ones being discriminated against are us......the legal--USA born--tax paying---AMERICANS!!

And I agree with you totally.  You work for an American company, in America, speaking to Americans.....make them understand us, not the other way around.

Hire Americans!

I am tired of all these foreigners answering our customer service calls. It costs those companies more money because the bastards have nno idea to help us. A call center in KY, NM or anywhere in the US is better than the GD foreign countries.

Bring the customer service jobs back home

We have enough people here who speak english and are looking for work!

Exactly

Why does our unemployment rate have to suck so badly when our jobs are being given to other countries.  It is not right.  I am literally getting to the point where if I am dealing with a company and I find out they are "outsourcing" their jobs.....I do not do my business with them any longer.  I will pay a little more if I have to as long as it is someone in my Country getting paid to do the job!!

Two reasons why they

Two reasons why they outsource. First and formost is the extreamly high taxes on business. America has the second highest taxes in the world. Second is the high labor costs here. Unless you are willing to work in the service area you might as well forget it. Get your HVAC your better off.

Is that you C?

That you C? Must be with that name,  no? It'd surprise me if it wasn't you cause randomly bumping into each other here, of all places, would make perfect sense. LOL

Yep MV, it's ALL because of taxes. For those taxes we live in a country where we are far from perfect but on the complete other side of the spectrum from places like Haiti that are absolutely demolished due to predictable and PREDITED disaster for which preperation would have saved most of the hundreds of thousands of lives lost and the millions who are now homeless with no food, water, or even temperary shelter, without Medical treatment, that would be US without taxes. In FACT, the elitests in this country want us all to go that route. They want ONLY the ultra Uber rich (those robber barrons they are without a hint of conscience) to be the only ones here to be able to survive natural disasters. They CONSTANTLY complain they are over taxed but NEVER EVER EVER praise the fact that they are so well protected by that which the taxes pay for. They want only MORE MORE MORE the greedy bastard monsters.

Taxes are not bad.

Misuse of taxes is bad.

The ultra rich are BY FAR the most egregious Abusers of tax money and most of them pay ZERO taxes but complain that they pay more than everyohne else which is utterly Bogus.

As for exporting jobs goes, there is not ONE poor person who had any say in the policy. It is the Ultra Rich who are so INSATIABLY GREEDY, never happy with oinly one enormous resource hogging mansion, not even with two, the average is in the double digits, a dozen mansions or more for those who complain they pay too much and get so little. Mostly they steel their money or inherit it while others suffer tortorous deaths, the majority of them starving and innocent CHILDREN. It's mass murder when you really get down to it, all because they are completely devoid of any humanity or conscience. They are the ones who control the voting rights at the giant corporations who ship the jobs overseas. Theyy are the ones without morals. Blame them NOT the taxes that are used for the benefit of them mostly and for EVERYONE in our country. Lose the taxes and you lose all safety, all clean water and air and food and soil and health care and livable buildings and education and electricity and transportation networks etc.

If you want a place where a person can be uber rich with merely thousands of dollars go to a place like Nigeria and get your own private well and generator and pay for your own little private security force to guard your home that must be fenced in bigtime (HIGH STRONG ELECTRIFIED fence) and call that a higher standard of living in a drunken demented state of mind those bastards all must have. That is what the wealthiest here are heading towards. They don't want to pay for infrastructure upgrades or even basic maintenance. Taxes are bad they say, Liberals are bad and only liberals want taxes those things should be paid for by the individual as should schooling and just about everything else. Well, then they would have no one to wipe their asses any longer. They'd have no servants of any kind and they aren't able to comprehend that. Their heads just about literally explode when you try and explain to them that people will not work for three full time jobs with no health care or child care or vacation time or paid leave when an immediate family member dies or is dying. They are Impossibly STUPID SELFISH beyond belief but it's true. They can not get enough to be happy EVER, nothing, no amount of wealth on the backs of how ever many others who had to suffer or die to get it to them is EVER enough. It's a sickness.

Now, if you want top discuss wasted and stolen tax money you will unite Everyone. That is a whole different story. But to cast a stigma on all taxes as being bad is the rich Uber Selfish Bastards' excuse for wanting everytihng and paying fror nothing at the cost of the most hideous suffering to their own kind who live "on the other side of the tracks". It's not going to continue. The masse have spoken. They have their limits and those limits have been pushed so far they are left with only one choice like the Haitians who are forced to loot in order to eat and survive at this time righ tnow.

People seem to have forgotten that the more they give the more they get. Take and take and take and take and it catches up with you. People are getting real prison time for it, finally. It's about time and there needs to be MUCH more prosecution.

As for businesses, businesses in the U.S. are among the LEAST taxed and BY FAR among all developed nations. FACT.

Argue the facts, make up some of your own, ignore them, change the subject, but the facts are the facts. The big businesses in this country control the lobbiest who control the legislators and they win MUCH more back for their enormous lobbying expenses or they wouldn't be paying them. The top richest corporations not only pay ZERO as in NO - ZEROOOOO taxes, they even get SUBSIDIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Subsides on OUR backs, the working people are paying to make the uber rich even richer such as Archer Daniels Midland. ADM is the biggest agriculture co. in the world and it owns more farm land in the U.S. than ALL small family farmers combined only THEY, ADM -0the GREEDY MF BASTARDS, get all the tax incentives that were specifically written to give aid to Small FAMILY farmers.

No more taxes are all bad arguments please. It's sickenly wrong wrong wrong and wrong. Taxes are fine and good when used properly, not when taken from the poor and working class and given to the richest like ADM. It isn't taxes that are bad but the mega rich who steal them who are. Those are not democrats either as everyone always seems to equate with taxes after being brainwashed repeatedly ad nauseum by the party of the uber rich who are the mega theives.

 

Haiti that are absolutely

Haiti that are absolutely demolished due to predictable and PREDITED disaster for which preperation would have saved most of the hundreds of thousands of lives lost and the millions who are now homeless with no food, water, or even temperary shelter, without Medical treatment, that would be US without taxes.

 

I am not saying taxes are bad. I am saying excessive taxes lead to corporations leaving the country. Why do you take what I said and bastardize it into something it is not? No one is talking about Haiti in this thread it has nothing to do with it.

 

Taxes are not bad. Agreed.but excessive taxes are.

Misuse of taxes is bad. No argument here.

The ultra rich are BY FAR the most egregious Abusers of tax money and most of them pay ZERO taxes but complain that they pay more than everyohne else which is utterly Bogus.

Ultra rich pay most of the taxes in this country a person with a family of 5 that makes 40 k or less gets money back I know I do.

t is the Ultra Rich who are so INSATIABLY GREEDY

So your ultra rich boss is nothing more then a greedy bastard the guy that employs you. Now I will say this not all rich people out there are greedy are there greedy ones of course but not all of them are as you portray them.

ever happy with oinly one enormous resource hogging mansion, not even with two, the average is in the double digits, a dozen mansions or more for those who complain they pay too much and get so little.

You must be talking about Al Gore and John Edwards.

But to cast a stigma on all taxes as being bad is the rich

I never said all taxes are bad. But if left up to you all money would go into the government then the government would pay you what they thought you were worth.

Taxes are fine and good when used properly, not when taken from the poor and working class and given to the richest like ADM.

I cannot begin to explain how factually wrong you are. Poor do not pay taxes matter of fact if you make 40 k or less a year you get more money back then you pay in. Hell last year I got back 3 grand more then I paid in and I am not considered poor.

I leave asking this TGIX how much taxes should the rich pay 100 percent 99 percent of what they make the rich already pay most of the taxes in this country. Top 50 percent of wage earners pay 96.3 percent of the taxes in the United States.

 

Top 5% pay 53.25% of all income taxes (Down from 2000 figure: 56.47%). The top 10% pay 64.89% (Down from 2000 figure: 67.33%). The top 25% pay 82.9% (Down from 2000 figure: 84.01%). The top 50% pay 96.03% (Down from 2000 figure: 96.09%). The bottom 50%? They pay a paltry 3.97% of all income taxes. The top 1% is paying more than ten times the federal income taxes than the bottom 50%! And who earns what? The top 1% earns 17.53 (2000: 20.81%) of all income. The top 5% earns 31.99 (2000: 35.30%). The top 10% earns 43.11% (2000: 46.01%); the top 25% earns 65.23% (2000: 67.15%), and the top 50% earns 86.19% (2000: 87.01%) of all the income.

Drive Thru

I'm not going to go that deep. I just hate going to a fast food drive thru and the order-taker has a really thick accent! It's bad enough the audio quality is bad, but the person on the other end doesn't understand my order! Half the time, the order screwed up!

I know what you mean Kirk and

I know what you mean Kirk and I hated Archer.

LOL

This morning I had to make a call for service regarding a product I'd purchased that clearly had the sticker on it "Proud to be American Made".  Imagine that I got a foreigner on the phone.

First off, I told him that I guessed I pushed the wrong button..English vs Spanish as I couldn't understand a word he said........

Then I told him that I really wanted to speak to an American..in America..as I was paying for an American made product.......

His reply..."Your product is American Made ma'am.."

And MY reply,.."Just not American Made customer service huh??"
