Not being sarcastic it's just a Miami thing. I am a USA Citizen and I don't like it but is a FACT of This City's Posture on the Language issue.

I go to Tarpon Springs, Fl and Astoria, NY n' they speak to me in Greek, Little Italy in Manhattan, NY and I find people talking to me in Italian, that doesn't happen in China Town because I am not Oriental.

So it happens all over this country at a minor scale, but it's a reality.

I keep saying the PROBLEM in Miami IS NOTHING more than the people in Customer Service and The Hospitality business do a HORRIBLE job, and that's where the Bad Reputation comes from.

The poster behind me brought the language ISSUE and not in a very GENTLE Way, not me ... It doesn't bother me a bit. I arrived in the USA 52+ years ago and I have no skin, but a turtle shell anymore and the crap bounces off me.
Yeah, try doing a good job while being overworked and underpaid like most ppl are in the hospitality industry.

The truth is (and everybody will admit it, including the non-speaking English portion of Miami's population) that it should be mandatory for immigrants to know basic English to stay in USA. Canada, Australia and England do it, why can't the US start implementing such laws as well ?

At the end of the day, those measures, while severe, look out for the immigrants themselves, for they guarantee they will be able to support themselves financially.

Obv the majority of people don't hate Miami, otherwise it wouldn't be the most expensive major city in Florida. It wouldnt be building tons of housing. It's not like Miami has all the good jobs, it's actually the opposite, the average salary in Miami is horrible.

I disagree with this. You should still learn English if you want to be uber rich in the USA. If you want to be poor and blame the super rich for keeping the poor down then go ahead. I learned English well before I even moved to the USA. English is the official business language of the world. Spanish is helping as well but not is not English.

as stated earlier in this thread, one of the reasons that contributes to 'hatred' or dislike are the drivers. I almost get hit by a car as a pedestrian on a weekly basis.

I got hit by a dry cleaner van when I was walking in the parking lot circle of my condo yesterday. The s*hmuk was driving too fast around a circle and was not even looking straight ahead nor paying attention when he went into me. Fortunately, he was not going THAT fast, he hit his brakes fairly quickly, and I am very athletic and agile and was not injured in the incident. (A small child or elderly person would not have been as fortunate as I was).

He happened to catch me on a good day and I forced a "lo siento" out of him. He is very lucky as my bad mood days often outnumber my good mood days and had he caught me on a bad mood day I definitely would have pressed his insurance company for compensation for soreness (my building has him hitting me on video) and I would have called I.C.E and INS and asked that they perform a background check on him. I let it go--next prick who hits me with a motor vehicle while I am walking will definitely not find me as forgiving or compassionate.

IMO a lot of people hate Miami because they love Miami, but hate everything they have to deal with to live here (and they're frustrated because they can't change those things they hate). It's a very love/hate thing most people have with living here.

I believe the single most thing that contributes to the hate is the traffic and the way people drive out here. There are days where it seems like all out lawlessness. I've been seeing more and more people in Jeeps and trucks going over medians, grassy areas, etc. to get to where they are going. There are way too many people who simply refuse to "accept" the traffic issue, and still want to drive like all out a$$holes to try and "avoid" the congestion (it's futile).

I also here a lot of people say "there's just too many people here." Yes, but you are also "one of those people" lol
