“Many years ago I was driving to San Diego and saw a car burning by the side of the freeway. I got my fire extinguisher and asked the lady standing by the car if there was anyone in the car. She didn’t speak a single word of English and so I had to get into that car to look. Luckily, nobody was in that car and I didn’t get burned but I was angry as hell that someone would live in the country and never try to learn our language.”

My GF is Canadian and the mexican DMV clerk had the gall to ask her if she wants the written test in English or “other”

MY GF’s response was “are you kidding me??”

My wife is Canadian, and we were looking after her seven year old sister during a medical emergency for six months a couple of years after we married.

My wife had business at the Social Security office regarding her green card or something like that. She took little Katy with her. Katy was the kind of little girl who would try to study and absorb ALL of her surroundings. In the waiting room, she was listening and looking intently. Eventually, she threw up hands in defeat, exclaiming "Too much French!" (many of the people in the waiting room were Spanish speakers, something unfamiliar to a little Canadian kid).
