I am not one that normally complains about foreigners talking to me on the phone. Most of them I find very mannerly and likeable. I can live with picking up the phone and pressing one then finding someone on the other end whom I don't need a translator to tell me what he is saying.
I had called western union to ask if some money we were wiring to my daughter had arrived or some such thing. I got one of the people from India that works from there on the phone. He was trying to tell me an address and I was about ten minutes to make out the word 'forest' but we finally did it. Then there was a second word and I cannot think of what is was but it took awhile for us to get it all worked out.
The guy was very apologetic and I understood his apology and tried very hard not to show my anger at him. I know he was trying and my anger was directed more at the company who failed to take enough effort to find someone who spoke better English. Or they could have taught this one better.
