I'm at the McD right now. Food tastes just like at any other McD's.

Wish woman was here right now..........I'd give her a swift kick.

Thread title is misleading probably because of the picture of the guy with the sign.

The Charter only applies to the government. This is potentially more like human rights tribunal issue.

It's actually surprisingly difficult to order in HK Without knowing the Chinese names. Makes it tough because you gotta learn all the whacky names that aren't direct translations. Then You have the issue that they aren't expecting you to even know how to say it, so they immediately don't hear it. Quite often these poor kids give up before even taking an order. Also they use different measurements ... The Quarter Pounder is called "3 Full Taels"

Probably would be different in the "white" neighbourhoods of course.

Easy in Japan since the names are all in English. But you gotta say it with a Japanese accent. You can't order a McDouble unless you say "makudaburu". First time I made the mistake of saying "mikudaburu" and they didn't get it.

This is retarded. She could have easily pointed out the drink she wanted without saying a word of English. As people have previously said, all she is doing is overexaggeratting this *mistake*.

Lol, someone who speaks French should:

1) Find out where she works
2) Go there speaking nothing but French
3) Make a scene when she doesn't understand what the fuck they're talking about
4) Go to the Newspapers demanding "RESPECT" and claim violation of human rights & freedoms on her ass
5) ???PROFIT???

Ironically, in Canada, that is more of a news story than this, but would see not airtime or front page space in Vancouver.

Sometimes I really hate the people in this city - most are good, but there are too many of these kinds of idiots trolling around ruining it for the rest of us

How about you go to McDonalds, eat there, and say you support them, McDonalds, in this dispute. MG1 has the right idea

Put it on Facebook

Dafuq? 10 years here and she still can't point and call out a number or say "Want <blank>"? That is a useless human.

Someone unstupid this woman please or just send her back to where she can get a fuckin' 可口可乐 in her own language.

I would not be surprised to see that kind of behaviour at all. As I was saying in my previous post, some (a lot?) of the Mainland Chinese have a serious entitlement problem. Additionally, the littlest thing could send them off into a bxtching fury (or even fist fights). I don't entirely blame them for having this behaviour because they have been pretty much conditioned into acting this way -- if you do not act all aggressive at the smallest thing back in China, you often don't get any service at all, and it is likely you'll get trampled on / taken advantage of all over by other more aggressive people.

But hey, Canada is not China. Keep that bs where it came from. The same behaviour is not acceptable here.

I always think of it this way, if I am moving to a new country then I would expect to communicate in that country offical language.

Beside is pretty hard to get hot chocolate and coffee mix up. Even then the ppl at McDonald's would just change it for you (I work at McDonalds before and trust they will change it for free if you ask). Most likely what happen is the Chinese girl drank almost all of it and then complain they give her the wrong order and want a free cup of coffee. The cashier was asking/looking for a manager for this and the girl got piss.

You are right and not to mention they want everything cheap. So they want to pay 3rd world country price but gets serve as a 1st class passenger. Work as customer service and the most cheapest people I dealt with are all Chinese. Luckily I always try to speak English to them which makes them somewhat afraid to ask for deals coz they can't speak English.

This all reminds me of one of the funniest things I've witnessed in a long time: was doing a service call in a gas station... watched as a Chinese customer got into a shouting match with the brown GSA... both trying to speak English, both with a thick accent, neither understanding the other AT ALL... best part was, I could make out enough to realize, they were both saying exactly the same thing, they just didn't realize it... so they kept getting louder and louder until the customer stormed out

To those saying she should have just pointed.....fuck that shit.

Bitch been here for 10 years. She should have told the employee in either English or French what she wanted.

I am on irony overload with the daughter holding a sign in Chinese as well.

Its been a long week of dealing with idiots because of the full moon...this was the icing on the cake. STERILIZATION FOR ALL

Wow I think the mom would be really flattered because the one on the left is the mom and she is the one carrying the Chinese sign.
