For weeks the Vietnamese woman who refuses to learn' English has driven me nuts by refusing my no I do not want that,.'She keot up shoving it at me and I'' lost it I raised my voice "No I do not want that,no damn it"'She blinked and stopped asking me.Oh dear I felt great, shame on me but it felt so good. Dinner was okay , ?Vietnamese beef seems to be not unlike ordinary beef' excect its too salty and too peppery too. That was man course bu I had t he Chinese salad, and veggies and the white cake for dessert Now onward upward time to myulot a lot One original post and graphic by P Hatley cop yrighted 2017

@Hatley Maybe at that age it is difficult for her to learn a language so different from her own.

It sounds like there is also a cultural barrier. I know she doesn't speak English, but I imagine she is just trying to be kind... Of course, it doesn't seem that way to you,and I completely understand. I would hate to be pestered and pestered, even after saying no.

@Hatley I wish there was a way you could get her to understand that...

Could be that she knows more English than she lets on and just wants to carry on with her kind of game. Dinner sounds very nice though.

@Hatley It could be for any reason that she is like that though. Probably nothing to do with where she is now with you all. It might be something that is from way back that is affecting her in a way.

I suspect she knows English, just doesn't want to use it. My grandma didn't converse very well in English but she knew exactly what was what on the TV shows she watched in English. She didn't need anyone to translate for her.

It is unfortunate that from time to time the only way you can get a point across is from yelling, but hope it has done it's job. Not sure I have ever had Vietnamese Beef before.
