Default For English press one...

So i called the local ski resort to check the current snow pack, and what i heard was, For English press one, para espanol whatever press 2.
i disagree with doing this for the minorities because in America we speak english. if we went to Mexico there's no press 2 for English anywhere. you must learn the native language. and we need to stop babying them

i agree but its not going to change because we already made it to easy for them, they do not have a reason to learn English anymore, since everything is in Spanish.

haha i live in idaho. all the people that work for us on our farms are illegal aliens. we see plenty of them on the hill and now the rivalry between my town and this other city is more than a board race or a big air comp. it's you touch this snow and i'll shank u. 2 people got shot at last year. i dont like the shiz they bring from mexico.

if something like that happens to me i ask for the manager , i don't tolerate that crap.
you have th latino's as foreigners , we have the frenchies and the middle east guys...
not fun belief me those guys have zero respect for our habits and they think they
are superiour if you are a man,
i feel your pain man , but here in belgium theire are so many complaints about the language problem,
belief me don't be suprised if you see in the next 10 years that belgium has been seperated.

I don't really think it will change for the USA. We are from all over the world. The original inhabitants, the native Americans, were almost entirely wiped out. I like that not everyone here is the same. I'd get sick of seeing nothing but fat white people all day. I love hearing other languages and seeing other cultures. I used to drive through a part of downtown Indy for college that had been taken over by Mexican families. All of the shops had Spanish signs and I couldn't understand a thing. It was like being in another country for 3 blocks. People even ignored the law. They just crossed the street wherever and whenever they wanted and usually in long lines. It was so crazy. I called it the Copa Cabana.

Anyways, I don't mind the other languages we accommodate, but I still think that you should learn English to work here, just because it is our national language.

i take back my comment. just remembered that alot of the intrawest employees are from south america on work-exchange programs. so while i might not notice latinos on the slopes, i'm sure there are some.
