Same applies to phone marketers. I'm bilingual. 1st french 2nd english. Whenever I answer my phone I say "Oui Allo?". Last time I answered to an american marketer, he greeted me with "Use proper English" So I replied "is go f-word yourself proper english enough for you?". Seriously you dial a phone number in Quebec Canada and really expecting people to answer the phone in your language? This guy didn't deserve my attention. If he at least asked me if I could speak English, I would of gladly switch to English. But don't call me and insult me by telling me to speak proper english. That's just rude, impolite and disrespectful.

Wrong. I was chilling in this small cafe once when a middle-aged,typical Karen started yelling because none of the staff knew English. This happened in Bulgaria.

In all fairness, English is such an approachable language speaking it in a basic form should really not be a problem for anyone whose native language has Germanic or Romance roots. Some people are just lazy Pretty sure I triggered sone French guy there xD

I do IT support for mainly Bri'ish, sometimes Americans. British people understand me perfectly well, the Americans on the other hand... If someone calls from a factory from the South, I have to tell everything at least three times because they don't even understand my accent. I have never, ever had this problem with Brits, or Australians, or non-native speakers. People from the South never even heard an accent different from theirs, I swear. Or they're just incredibly dumb. At least they are nice tho
