Air Traffic Controller Talk 1

courtesy of Funny2 - Air Traffic Controller Talk 1


Allegedly, a Pan Am 727 flight waiting for start clearance in Munich overheard the following -Lufthansa (in German): "Ground, what is our start clearance time?" Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in English." Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane, in Germany. Why must I speak English?" Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent): "Because you lost the bloody war."

Aren't you cute. Pot stirrers. You're no better than anyone who does the same on the right. And if I happened to overhear you talking smack I would respond with equal amounts of smack, in either language. Don't assume anything about people you don't know.

A new survey finds white Republicans are far more likely to be put off by foreign language speakers than their Democratic counterparts.
Really? They actually created a survey for this? Its obviously biased and made specifically made to make "white Republicans" look bad, that is if it is even accurate.

Iíve never understood why someone elseís conversation bothers a third party. Itís none of your concern what language someone else is speaking. Mind your business.

Poor Trumplings, in denial about the obvious.

Why, since it's still English? There aren't southern Democrats that do the same thing? There's a whole lot of difference between speaking English with an accent (of which doesn't bother me at all) and not speaking English at all.

The language that is most bothersome is the democrats language.
They constantly change the meaning of words to stifle and disrupt traditional communication through the English language. It becomes more like Pig-Latin without the rules. Some say its just jibber-jabber but imagine being sick and in the hospital and that's all one hears. That would be bothersome at the least.

I, too, find it hard to believe.

I've only heard of people getting upset about even automated calls on the internet. On this forum, in fact. Hmmm
