    i also find it frustrating when i ask a clerk, office person, mechanic, etc. a question in english and they answer the little woman in visayan. this is especially annoying when it's a technical/procedural type question that the little woman has no experience in. english is one of the national languages here, yes?

    It probably isn't politically correct to adopt the principles of War, but when thinking about how 'agencies' used to catch out female foreign spies by getting them pregnant and then they would ALWAYS shout and scream in their native tongue during childbirth - perhaps we should spank & generally mistreat our wives a bit more? That way we would probably be encouraged to learn their language more quickly?

    Just a thought....:cigar:

    :wideyed: Just as a finish maybe as there has been not a late of late. Yesterday ( Well last night) as it is Fiesta time in Northern Junob, we had some Visitors come late on after we had all been out for a meal. the Visitors had come to look at how the house was progressing. As my Wife was showing them around she had to come to me on Quite a few occasions to ask for clarification on a few things, I sat at my Work station as the conversation was of no use to me as they were shown around. One of the Wives remarked how patient I was with all this, to which my Wife looked at her a little astounded. She asked OH! Why do you say this. Well Corazon if you spoke in English instead of Bisya Jack might take more interest in what we are doing. I have noticed that you always talk in our language even at home then Moan because you have to say it all again to him in English. If you spoke in English all the time at Home there would be no Problem. this is from one of her oldest and dearest friends. Enough said I think!
