and no im not moaning about cheese burgeras this time.

me and my sister popped into the small BK at east croydon station and she brought some chips for her youngest.

as he is only 2 years old she asked if she could have one of their paper cups (like coffe or coke cup, whatever was available) to put the chips in so he could hold them properly without spilling.

she was refused with just a shrug of the shoulders and a look of 'me not understand english' (im not being racist it honestly looked like he didnt understand what she said). we asked again and again she was refused.

A PAPER CUP.

:rotfl:

as we were leaving i called him a tightar$e.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me

    maybe a basic understanding of english should be mandatory for anyone working or living in this country - BEFORE they get to work or live here.
    The word is BOUGHT, not BROUGHT.

    i'll be perfectly tolerant and accept them well when they start living in this country as a citizen of it, language and customs included, rather than trying to make it an annexe of a country hundreds of miles away.

    I agree! Though I guess someone has to flip the burgers! I do enjoy a Burger King every so often - they are pretty tasty - alot more so than Mcdonalds!

    i am not racist but went shopping today in tunbridge wells kent have not been for a long time how times have changed camdenroad has shops for polish selling polish food what? i was shocked seeing that it used to be stockbroker belt. even the shops had polish staff although it is fair to say a lot of the shops were asking for staff i personally feel we have a polish invasion as i live in london and seen it change not for the best oh well dorset here i come!
    Before you point fingers,make sure your hands are clean !;)
  • I'm not racist 'but' ... does not negate the fact that you then went on to say some fairly racist things. Maybe those polish food shops are for polish stockbrokers, they're not all burger flippers you know.

  • Aren't there shops selling english food and products abroad? There are plenty of UK ex pats around the world and english shops spring up around them.

    you would have thought that would already be a requirement, i worked for one of the big supermarkets and the employed a huge amount of polish people but there were some who didnt speak one word of english and mistakes were made due to them not understanding english
