So I was in the middle of working on a Spanish client (this is a normal day for me) and I realized that while I was on Topamax, I had to use the so-called translator website much more often then. Now, I write everything down and just use it as a Spellchecker. happy my skills are returning. then that asshole coworker laughed as I was speaking Spanish to practice. I'm pretty sure it was a coindence as I was speaking quietly, and his only claim to know Spanish is that his wife is half puertorican/African american and her grandmom speaks Spanish in her house. I know he knows the usual-greetings, curse words, and references to sex drugs and violence. so how much he can speak it in a business setting, I got no clue.
either way, it bothered me i cared about his opinion. for goodness sakes, I got a bilingual coworker who obviously respects my knowledge enough to use some of my vocabulary (I've known this man since I got here and wished he was in DEF longer.). why do I care about THIS assholes opinion? eh, whatever. I just feel so much better that I don't need to use that translation site like a Damn crutch. especially since translation sites in general are crap. This one I found is at least decent.
as I sit here and complain about the Spanish customer, my brain starts to write a new client in Spanish - only that client is purely enlgish speaking. Whoops!!
