I have just ordered out for some Chinese food. I have given my order and address to a gentleman whose English could only be described as completely incomprehensible. I repeated the order several times, eventually resorting to using numbers, at his request, but even then, its doubtful whether he actually got it… “50” became “15” (NO, I cried… FIVE – ZERO, FIFTY!)… I have no idea what food I will get… or even if it will arrive… I had to spell the name of my street and even though theres a K in it, he still seemed to think it was a Q. And when I asked how long it would be before it arrived, he said “bye” and hung up.
What the HELL do these restaurants think they are doing? If you’re going to serve a primarily English population, FFS, learn English!! And DON’T get a customer service job until you can speak and understand it correctly.
[edit: 10 mins later]
The delivery guy just called because he could not understand the address that had been written down. at least now he knows where he has to be. Lord knows what I will get in my order…
