If those idiots didn't put support for foreign languages into the wysiwig machines English would have won by now.
Sincerely, a true 'Ugly American'.
Oh, by the way, we aren’t the only UGLY ones.
I was in Montréal a few years ago (in the 80's) and I was on Center Street, french bars on one side, English bars on the other.
I met a group, unbeknownst to me at the time, of french separatist.
The very attractive dark hair french girl invited me upstairs with her and several of her 'friends'. I should have known better, they were all dressed in black from head to toe.
After sitting with them at a table for a few minutes I very politely asked her if they could speak English as I do not understand one word of french.
She very impolitely screamed in french:
'Manger la merde et mourir!'.
The in English:
'You dammed Americans. You come up here with your dammed English and expect us to speak it.'
Then she screamed a few more things in french and I noticed that
the four burly fellows across from me were getting out of their chairs and I did not like the way they were staring at me...
I ran for my life, down the stairs, across the street, into an English pub and right into the Australian National Rugby Team.
I told them what had happened and they piled out the door to ask the frenchmen what their problem was...
I have never seen anyone in the US go berserk if their asked to speak french, German, Italian, etc...
