Bilingual

Depending on where you live the word bilingual might me something different to you. If you live near Canada or in Canada speaking both French and English would come to mind. Well here in the Central Valley people seem to think that the word bilingual means you can speak both Spanish and English. I remember when I was in high school a relative on my Aunt’s side of the family went in for an interview because he said he was bilingual and they felt he fit the job description they put in the paper. He didn’t even finish the interview because when they went from English to Spanish he said he was sorry, but couldn’t speak Spanish. The interviewers became upset saying he gave them false information when he spoke with them over the phone. He told them he is fluent in French and that makes him bilingual.

I’m writing this blog because Pizza Patron will only hire bilingual managers since 60%+ of their customers are Hispanic. While what they say is true, it’s also misleading since I doubt the other language of any of their managers is something other then Spanish. There’s a big hoopla about the company accepting pesos right now since they have stores 400+ miles away from the boarder accepting the currency. Honestly I could careless if they accepted beads and trinkets for their food. It’s the owner’s choice and right to accept any form of pay the owner is willing to take. Why should other people care what the person who owns the company wants to take in return for his company’s service? I could only see a problem if you could get the food cheaper if you use pesos. Hell I have some pesos left over from my junior high trip to Mexico I can now make use of if I ever wanted to! XD The argument I’ve heard is that it promotes illegal people to come to the US. That’s right peeps, people from Mexico are crossing the boarder illegally and heading to Denver to spend their pesos on pizza! <_< Sometimes I seriously worry about people. I thought my logic was screwed up.

My problem is that I just hate it when people say they would hire a person who’s bilingual, but if the other language wasn’t Spanish it doesn’t count. I smell a lawsuit waiting to happen! XD I wonder if I can find a place that caters to people with won (Korean Money), lire (Italian money) or yuan (Chinese money) so I can use the money my mom gave me when she used to live there. (Ok, she never lived in China, but my dad took many trips to China when they lived in Korea.)

I visited a blog that mentioned Pizza Patron and someone made a comment how everyone in the world learns English for the US. That’s right just for little ol’ US of A you all learn English. I found this link very interesting. So many countries have English as their main language, besides the obvious ones like England, Canada and Australia, but it’s all for the US that everyone learns English? The person also mentioned that it wouldn’t hurt us to learn a little Spanish. I had a choice in high school to learn, but I was rebelling by taking French instead. We have to learn another language, it’s required by law, but unlike other countries we get choices. We also do not require everyone to learn English. There are plenty of people who live and die here in the US who can’t speak a single word. Should we require everyone who lives here speak English? I think the basics should be required since it’s the respectful thing to do when you become a citizen of any country, but “eh”. As long as they don’t complain about us not catering to them because they can’t speak English I don’t care if they do. It’s when they do whine that I get testy about it.

I’m probably the odd man out with how I think, once again, but “eh”. I guess once you get used to knowing the way you think is different then others you quit caring so much. My “friend” laughs because I refuse to go to Japan and be thought of a “stupid American” (or in my case they’d probably think stupid Korean) so I won’t go until I know a good deal of Japanese. I’m sure I could get around and enough people can speak English there, but why make them when I’m the one visiting their country?

Edit: I must say I am very proud of the people who were driving around me. A rig with gas or something tipped over on North bound 99 and usually that means South bound is pretty much stopped as well. No one stopped. We all just kept trucking along at a nice steady 40-50 mph pace. I’m so proud of everyone! XD

I ended up working on the game instead of editing scans last night. I feel pretty bad about it, but then again with this horrible headache I’ve been having it makes me not care about much. I hope it goes away soon since at work I don’t take Vicodine. Depending on how much I’ve had to eat and drink I can sometimes get a bit loopy so I prefer to be at home. Maybe I’ll do a half chapter release today for Kimi wa Petto since I haven’t done a release for that series in a long time.

I am looking very forward to my lunch. :) I forgot to bring it so I’m thinking Chinese food and I burned KareKano episode 1-3. I burned episode 1 since it fit on the CD, but I doubt I’ll watch it. It’s actually a series I don’t mind listening to dubbed. If you’ve never watched it, but like anime and comedies you should give it a try. It’s about a girl who at school pretends to be something completely different then she is at home and what happens to her with living a double life. I can relate a lot since that was me in high school, except my senior year since I found the school system to be stupid so I found loop holes and used them. If any teachers are out there make sure students who are bored are given something to do. It’s scary and semi-evil when they are left to amuse themselves. My mom learned that early on. XD

Odd procedures.

I saw my dentist last week for a teeth cleaning. When I called to make an appointment since they never called me I found out why they had such stupid procedures on how long you had to wait before you could make your next appointment. My old dentist let me make appointments as soon or as late as I wanted. I was shocked and semi annoyed when I was told I couldn’t make the appointment then that they would call me in 3 months to make an appointment for 3 months after that. <_< Yeah I know... When they never called I called them and found out why their stupid rule is in place. It seriously doesn’t make sense. I pay my dental insurance month by month so at any given time I can cancel it. It seems they are afraid that people will make their 6 month appointment and then cancel their insurance before their appointment. Oh no what ever shall they do with all of those empty appointment?! Does anyone else see the flaw in their way of thinking? If they feel that way then should I only be allowed to make an appointment for that month? Think about it. Ten people, like myself, make an appointment for a date in 3 months. A month later they all cancel their insurance. What’s this? Appointments in the future being broken? That’s the whole reason why they put their stupid silly a** rule in the first place! The only way to solve the problem would be to keep a month by month appointment book. <_<

My appointment went well except for the fact the dentist they brought in to check a tooth that’s a bit chipped went from one extreme to another. I know I grip my teeth. I know that it can and probably is part of the reason why I have headaches. I am not going to wear braces. I am not going to pay $425 bucks for a mouth guard. I will do nothing since unless the tooth has a cavity they will not fix it for a reasonable price. The amount they want is more then my car payment! Yeah, for 5 minutes of the dentist’s time they want me to pay them over 300 bucks to fill in a tooth. It’s not visible so screw it. The guy kept talking about juggling balls, which of course made me giggle, and how this chipped tooth seems to be one ball I can’t handle, which made me giggle again. I’m thinking to myself, as he keeps going on and on about juggling balls and how much my body can handle and talking about leaving it alone and then about braces or surgery, “Will this guy ever shut up so I can get my teeth cleaned? I get it; juggling balls, bad for my health and giving me headaches. Shut up! Go away! God, please have someone tell him he’s needed somewhere else!” He was only there for 5-10 minutes, but it felt like I was there for an eon. I think it was karma getting back at me for not flossing everyday like they told me I’m supposed to the last time I went. Damn karma. I’ve been flossing everyday in hopes I never have to see him again. XD

I guess the highlight of the day would be when I saw the girl who went over the cost of what the recommended I did gained a crap load of weight. It made me feel better about the two pounds I gained that I’ve been trying to get rid of in the same amount of time. :) I refuse to get any bigger though since that would be going up a size. That is not an option! Fight-o Oh!

My weekend went very well though. I came into work on Saturday, which is always fun. Whenever I tell people they always feel sorry for me though. They give me this “pitiful you” sort of look like I just said my dog died or something. Why? The traffic is amazing so I get to speed to my hearts content, I get to order lunch from Quiznos, I adore their flat bread salads, which is always too busy when I go to lunch during the week, listen to my music as loud as I want, I get to sing along to songs I want to, walk around the building in my socks and I get to turn the heater/ac to the temp I like it at. :) It’s rather fun. Speaking of singing along with songs; there was a woman in the waiting room who kept singing along with the radio they had piped in. I don’t really care for their music to begin with, but to have a woman sing off key and in a semi loud voice was just that more annoying. I kept my mouth in check though and just concentrated on my game of Zuma I was playing.

Once again though I come up with this bright idea to make a game for Animanga Network and don’t give the people who are helping me pull it off very much time to respond or react. For someone who loves planning you’d think I’d give myself and others more time. Thank God I have a great group of friends and staffys who are always ready to help me out when I need it! XD I’m uploading the prize like a mad woman and since I have a great cable net connection so it’s going pretty smoothly. Since I won’t be announcing the game for another day I’m sure I can get everything ready for the game. I’m more afraid of there being no one willing to participate or people whining about the list being too hard. I think I’d cry if no one wanted to play.

I had to break my resolution though, but I’m hoping to at least put up a half chapter from KWP tonight. I don’t have anything planned and unless I get in an “I don’t wanna do jack crap.” sort of mood I should be able to do it.
