    Being angry and swearing too much is a built-in requirement for Massholes.

    Oh and to stay on topic, I'll have 2 chicken quesadillas with extra sauce and a cheesy gordita crunch. Thanks.

    You may as well be in Cuba in some parts of South Florida. On the other hand, most English speakers should know enough Spanish to order. I know it's not the point. Just saying. I can count to 100 and know basic phrases like esta todo at the end of my order.

    Yes it is, it's about a business running it as the owner sees fit, as long as they are not discriminating against a protected class.

    It’s apparent you really don’t get it.

    Not the same thing at all. For one, this worker doesn't own this taco bell. There is nothing to indicate this taco bell has a policy of only speaking Spanish. Therefore, the baker comparison makes no sense.

    Two, even if the customer was rude to the employee, still doesn't give them the right to refuse service. Anyone who has worked in a position that deals with the public has been treated poorly at one time or another. Doesn't mean you get to ignore that customer. If the customer was rude, get your manager involved.

    Not sure why you are defending this person.

    This is not cool and shouldn't fly anywhere.

    But, the entire argument being private vs. franchised/corporate, not the same thing.

    Taco bell is VERY different than "Jack's Pancake house" where they can make up their own rules.

    This is America. If you migrate to a new country, you need to learn the most common language spoke (SVTP folks, please don't try to debunk this and try to convince me with a statistic that English is not the most common language, I won't really care) and take in the customs here. If I moved to another country, I would do my utmost to learn the native language of that country.

    I agree. There is a fine line between being accepting of other cultures and virtue-signaling for SJW points.

    Believe it or not, America has never claimed any one language as being the official spoken language of the States. It has been brought up and knocked down over the past two centuries though.

    However, English is accepted as the "common" language.

    Welcome to the game of politics.

    If you want to be an American, you should assimilate to American values and culture. If you do not want to change, but want to change America, go back home.

    I'm easy to get along with.

    Of course, I understand that.

    The "common" language is english, however. Not the official as there is no true language designation.

    Politics or not, learn the common language of the country you migrate to.

    Exactly, it’s good if you need a colon torpedo to empty your guts.

    Every time I go there I ask myself, "why did I go there?"

    It’s filthy ass food, but in a dirty good way. I go every once in a blue moon. I definitely wouldn’t subject my body to regular consumption of their food like products.

    I never understood why restaurants always put the most English-challenged people on the drivethu in the first place. It was bad enough 10 years ago in a lily white Kansas suburb when my "sausage mcmuffin and a diet coke" turned into "thoth mahfeeng dieh coe" but to not even speak English at all? What dumb **** manager puts the employee in that situation?
