I know it sounds crazy....lol.
This makes sense. But it's YOU guys who are encouraging the Hispanics (no disrespect for the hard working people of North America) "to keep" their language over there in the states. All the things, including small instructions and manuals (even the tiny sticker in the bus that says the seat belongs to the handycapped and elderly) were written in Spanish. Example: When I was working as a cashier at the grocier store, one time one customer (he's probably around 16 or 17) was upset and said to me in broken English that I should learn Spanish, because he wouldn't understand English. It was freaking Utah, not California or Texas. But I'm sure this is a temporary thing and you guys will work it out like you always did in your past.

Back to the story, if it's true NICE JOB, if not then oh well.

Excellent point. No doubt, a good bit of it is our fault. We tend to pander. At the same time I would think that many would want to learn the English language eventually if they plan on living in this country. I just find it very odd that somebody would move to a foreign country and not bother learning the language.
