    don't hold it against them b/c they're foreign.
    they need jobs, too.

    however, i do agree with you to some extent.
    if they are going to work in an english speaking
    community, they should be able to speak well
    enough to get by.

    i would do the same if i moved to japan....then again
    they teach their children english in school now.

    If you're talking about phone support, it is all outsourced anymore, so you're likely talking to people in India.

    Other than that, I've never had this problem outside trying to communicate with professors at college who somehow learned advanced calculus but never learned english. Fuckers.

    haha. same experience
    whole math dept. is chinese.
    at a land grant college...wtf?

    somehow the college slipped
    that one by.

    if you weren't chinese, or
    couldn't speak it, you failed.

    yeh i totally agree with not being against foreigners. a line has to be drawn somewhere though. If you're speaking to me and your english is so bad that i can barely understand what your saying, all poor grammer aside, i dont see how anyone like that could be working in an important position....

    yeah, i work as a technical support rep for high speed data services...almost every customer expresses how happy they are that i don't have an accent and that i'm american...it actually kind of makes me mad when they say it because i hear it so much, but it's totally understandable...having an accent or any other language barrier when you're in a field of work where communication is key is like being a on legged basketball player.

    i forgot...
    i feel the frustration of customers that have to deal with employees that can't speak english everytime someone calls me for technical support that can't speak english well. it will take me like 5 minutes to get them to go from their desktop on their computer to the control panel...shit is rediculious.

    When I told some lady today that I was transferring her over to tech support, she said "Oh you're not going to transfer me over to someone in India are you? Because I can rarely understand what they are saying.". I laughed.
