    Does hearing people speak foreign languages piss you off?

    Anybody else, or am I just a grumpy *******?

    I hate hearing co workers, people on the bus rabbling in English, let alone Spanish/Chinese etc.

    Nope. I don't pay attention to what anyone's saying anyway, wether it's in English or not.

    On my plane to Orlando on Sunday, some woman asked me if I would switch seats with her so she could sit next to her son. I told her no. She got annoyed, so I said if she wanted to sit next to her son, she should have booked two seats next to each other instead of trying to inconvenience a complete stranger who happily booked himself an aisle seat. Oh yeah, her son was about 20, not 5. And her request and the ensuing conversation happened in Spanish.

    The idiotic request pissed me off more than the language in which it was asked.

    Only when it's done solely for the sake of me not understanding them.

    These are definitely the types of battles that old proverb asks you to pick. Good to see you stick vehemently to your guns!

    Unless it was one hot chick offering me "mile high" service for it, I would never give up my aisle seat on a plane.

    Only in a work environment, where the conversants are perfectly capable of speaking English, but choose not to. (especially a conversation punctuated by loud laughter, table slapping and pointing in my direction) I believe it is disrespectful.

    Another thing is when chicks, who I can prolly take, tailgate me on the highway. Especially young chicks. It shows no acknowledgement of the fact that I could rip them out of their cars and ragdoll them into oncoming traffic for such insolence.

    If they are in small cars, its even worse.

    No. I don't like inconveniencing people when I have to piss and I never sleep on planes so it doesn't bother me when they do. Guess I'm an unselfish kind of dick.

    You're just hoping you're sitting in a row of dudes, and you get the ass-in-face or balls-in-face every time they get up. Win-win scenario for JT.
