Bilingual

Depending on where you live the word bilingual might me something different to you. If you live near Canada or in Canada speaking both French and English would come to mind. Well here in the Central Valley people seem to think that the word bilingual means you can speak both Spanish and English. I remember when I was in high school a relative on my Aunt’s side of the family went in for an interview because he said he was bilingual and they felt he fit the job description they put in the paper. He didn’t even finish the interview because when they went from English to Spanish he said he was sorry, but couldn’t speak Spanish. The interviewers became upset saying he gave them false information when he spoke with them over the phone. He told them he is fluent in French and that makes him bilingual.

I’m writing this blog because Pizza Patron will only hire bilingual managers since 60%+ of their customers are Hispanic. While what they say is true, it’s also misleading since I doubt the other language of any of their managers is something other then Spanish. There’s a big hoopla about the company accepting pesos right now since they have stores 400+ miles away from the boarder accepting the currency. Honestly I could careless if they accepted beads and trinkets for their food. It’s the owner’s choice and right to accept any form of pay the owner is willing to take. Why should other people care what the person who owns the company wants to take in return for his company’s service? I could only see a problem if you could get the food cheaper if you use pesos. Hell I have some pesos left over from my junior high trip to Mexico I can now make use of if I ever wanted to! XD The argument I’ve heard is that it promotes illegal people to come to the US. That’s right peeps, people from Mexico are crossing the boarder illegally and heading to Denver to spend their pesos on pizza! <_< Sometimes I seriously worry about people. I thought my logic was screwed up.

My problem is that I just hate it when people say they would hire a person who’s bilingual, but if the other language wasn’t Spanish it doesn’t count. I smell a lawsuit waiting to happen! XD I wonder if I can find a place that caters to people with won (Korean Money), lire (Italian money) or yuan (Chinese money) so I can use the money my mom gave me when she used to live there. (Ok, she never lived in China, but my dad took many trips to China when they lived in Korea.)

I visited a blog that mentioned Pizza Patron and someone made a comment how everyone in the world learns English for the US. That’s right just for little ol’ US of A you all learn English. I found this link very interesting. So many countries have English as their main language, besides the obvious ones like England, Canada and Australia, but it’s all for the US that everyone learns English? The person also mentioned that it wouldn’t hurt us to learn a little Spanish. I had a choice in high school to learn, but I was rebelling by taking French instead. We have to learn another language, it’s required by law, but unlike other countries we get choices. We also do not require everyone to learn English. There are plenty of people who live and die here in the US who can’t speak a single word. Should we require everyone who lives here speak English? I think the basics should be required since it’s the respectful thing to do when you become a citizen of any country, but “eh”. As long as they don’t complain about us not catering to them because they can’t speak English I don’t care if they do. It’s when they do whine that I get testy about it.

I’m probably the odd man out with how I think, once again, but “eh”. I guess once you get used to knowing the way you think is different then others you quit caring so much. My “friend” laughs because I refuse to go to Japan and be thought of a “stupid American” (or in my case they’d probably think stupid Korean) so I won’t go until I know a good deal of Japanese. I’m sure I could get around and enough people can speak English there, but why make them when I’m the one visiting their country?

Edit: I must say I am very proud of the people who were driving around me. A rig with gas or something tipped over on North bound 99 and usually that means South bound is pretty much stopped as well. No one stopped. We all just kept trucking along at a nice steady 40-50 mph pace. I’m so proud of everyone! XD

I ended up working on the game instead of editing scans last night. I feel pretty bad about it, but then again with this horrible headache I’ve been having it makes me not care about much. I hope it goes away soon since at work I don’t take Vicodine. Depending on how much I’ve had to eat and drink I can sometimes get a bit loopy so I prefer to be at home. Maybe I’ll do a half chapter release today for Kimi wa Petto since I haven’t done a release for that series in a long time.

I am looking very forward to my lunch. :) I forgot to bring it so I’m thinking Chinese food and I burned KareKano episode 1-3. I burned episode 1 since it fit on the CD, but I doubt I’ll watch it. It’s actually a series I don’t mind listening to dubbed. If you’ve never watched it, but like anime and comedies you should give it a try. It’s about a girl who at school pretends to be something completely different then she is at home and what happens to her with living a double life. I can relate a lot since that was me in high school, except my senior year since I found the school system to be stupid so I found loop holes and used them. If any teachers are out there make sure students who are bored are given something to do. It’s scary and semi-evil when they are left to amuse themselves. My mom learned that early on. XD

Everyone is learning English because it's the international language. I'm forced to learn Malay and English when I was in school.. Because Malay is the national language and English's the international language. >.< there are a lot of English words which have been turned into Malay words, with different spelling and it sometimes screws my English. I wish I could learn French, Spanish, or Japanese.. Or even Chinese if I can't learn any one of those 3. Living a double life sounds fun..
