Went in to buy some helium with my friend Ricardo. The man at the ramp speaks to my friend Ricardo in Spanish. They carry on a conversation for a while & Ricardo finally interprets for me they are out of helium. I asked the warehouse man what was going on and he tells me he does not speak English. We drove off and I am telling Ricardo about assimilation & learning to speak English in America. We got halfway to the shop and I find out he only had enough helium to fill my tank halfway. I turned around and went back because I only needed half a tank. If he had spoke English I would have known this. I went into the office and everyone except me was speaking Spanish. America is a English speaking country and business is conducted in English. I should not have to learn Spanish in my own country. This is not racist or bigotry, it is common sense. We do not need to be bilingual to accommodate immigrates that which to live & work in our country. I do wish to be a stranger in my own land.

Just a moment...
