I agree but when it comes to "Table talk" english language it should be. How can they prove there isn't collusion when the only 2 people at the table is speaking the language the rest of the table doesn't understand.
Last place I worked before I starting working with my brother in law, well there was over 50 diffrent cultures and 60 diffrent countries/foreign languages spoken. So no it doesn't annoy me, it was actually interesting at times to find out about diffrent cultures and learn a new word now and then in a diffrent language. Some were cuss words, some were work related, some where just how to say hi and goodbye.
My most memorable thing though, she always took this in stride. I had a boss and her named was spelt Dung, which had that sewn into her outfit cause all supervisors did. All new people who read and 1st met her always said "Dung" and I remember the 1st day I met her, I thought who in the world wants to be named crap??
However come to find out it is pronounced Young. She never took offense cause most people said it how it was spelt, and she knew this. Yet she would correct them though.
