Yes you're right, but that involves bilingual and even multilingual employees. Nothing wrong with that.

In my situation, co-worker only speaks Spanish. The language barrier between us actually slowed us down.

We all "drink" the Koolaid around here. It just depends on your flavor - Democrat, Libertarian, Republican, etc.

I inferred that you work at McDonald's because you're not bright enough to pick up a few words of Spanish.

I'd hate to know what you think about Hispanics that speak no English.

After reading some of your past posts I realized you're in no position to question anybody's IQ. Thanks for the laughs

If there is something wrong or offensive with this ad as some of you claim, why is it only one person so far has voted in the negative? Are you ashamed to admit you disagree with the sentiments of the ad?

Or not. After all, the internet wasn't around back then and didn't give people the platform to speak their minds.

So, I guess it was Spanish, Tagalog, Senegalese-French, Hebrew, Mandarin, Keres, Hindi, Arabic and English? Which of these are OK and which are not?
