Imagine dealing with a potential emergency involving people that don’t have a clue what you are saying. You get on the phone to someone who can interpret and the phone gets passed back and forth while time is a wasting. After things get worked out, the very people you are trying to help say through an interpreter that you should learn how to speak Spanish. Been there and done that, and I can say it really sucks.

I don’t live by the border. I live in the heartland of the USA. Maybe I missed the mandatory Spanish speaking requirement. What the heck have we become? It’s only a matter of time before someone gets sued because they responded to a situation and couldn’t communicate in Spanish or whatever language.

Very easy solution to this life threatening problem: LEARN ENGLISH.
