the language barrier

ms_anthropy had this to say to/about irate ESL customers over in customers_suck:

I speak a smattering of some other languages, and I will bend over backwards to help you out and establish communication, but do NOT get your ass on your shoulder because I can't work out what you're saying. I'm trying, and I'm being sympathetic about it. And no, repeating the random vowel movement you're having over and over in an increasingly angry tone will not help. I couldn't understand it the first time, I can't understand it now, and unless I am suddenly magically visited by the Comprehension Fairy, who will use her magic wand to bestow upon me the gift of tounges, say halleleujah, I am not going to understand it the next seventeen times you scream it at me.

QWP, entire post is here.
