Do you get Annoyed when Co-workers speak another language?

For a second, put yourself in the person speaking the foreign language's shoes. As a person living abroad, I know this feeling well. If there's a group of English people around me, fucking right I'm gonna speak English to them ffs. Why the fuck wouldn't I? Every single person saying they're annoyed by people speaking their native languages would do the same. Imagine living abroad, hanging out with English people at work and speaking to them in a language you're no where near as fluent in as your native tongue. You just wouldn't do it.

Now the problem would be if you then ignored the other people in the workplace who don't speak your language and isolate yourself. But then that comes down to the type of person you are and not the language you are speaking, imo.

Work with loads of forigners abd the only one that annoyed me was an indian bloke that was always on the phone at break times was quite loud and im not even exaggerating when i say always, i mean what the fuck does he have so much to talk about?

Spot on. Lots of English speakers are simply never in this situation and don't realise what it is like. But in all 3 countries I have lived and worked in, in Asia, the English speakers always hang out together and ex pat communities are everything, because yes...people want to hang out with people who they can just chat to naturally.

i work in a varied place too. dont really care. theres this group of 2 chinese chicks and a lady. they def talk about me cause ive seen em in one of the break rooms quickly point their chop sticks at me. one of the chicks is into me, pretty sure the lady thinks im a knob though.



hearing Russian women speak Russian has me like Van Damne at the end of this gif here:




it sounds so elegant when they speak it. it flows so nicely. but when Russian dudes speak it sounds rough as fuck. like theyre plotting to beat someones ass.


its southern arizona so theres a ton of spanish too.


some Vietnamese, couple Filipino folks

my favorite are these 2 Japanese elderly folk.. Fuck i wish theyd teach me Japanese. dopest language

Wouldnt have guessed :rofl
I did a stint teaching English as a foreign language as a student many moons ago (the pay was shit but the sex was terrific). I had enough pigeon English conversations to last a lifetime. Lived in London for many years also, so had it up to here with foreigners generally no racist.

a decent % of foreign people i worked with couldn't understand me unless i made an effort. which i didn't do much so it'd be hypocritical to get mad at them.

Of course I do! Everyone does!

Why? Because we all think when we hear our co-workers talking in a language we can't speak or don't understand they're actually talking shit about us.

FACT!

Nope. I honestly think people see shit that isn't there when it comes to this kind of stuff. Like, who would go through the trouble of speaking in another language in order to talk shit about someone only to make gestures that obviously point to that being what they're doing? It doesn't make any damned sense. If the objective is to talk shirt you aren't going to know, and the vast majority of the time that's not going to be the objective any way so who gives a shit?

Look I know it shouldn’t annoy me but at times it just does.

We have whole shifts at work that are entirely polish,they are cliquey,rude as fuck,unwilling to mix and a bunch of cunts basically.And yes I have tried to be friendly towards them on a number of ocassions,now they can get fucked.

It 100% happens and I know that for a fact because the English do it to foreigners.

I work with a few Hungarians. we get on fine but they definitely slag off the locals as you can hear names being said in conversation they also shout constantly so wheb I'm in a room with 3 of them and they are all shouting over each other and laughing obnoxiously it does get annoying. generally they are pretty good for trying to include you though

They probably think youre a walkover. Try raising your voice. Make sure they answer
