Kinda P.O.ed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well, today we were getting some of the carpet in our house replaced. The installers were an hour late. When they got here, I put Bella into me and my sister's shared bathroom -- the only safe place (they had the front door open and they needed all our doors to be open to install the new carpet). Five hours later, they're STILL here and still have a lot to do. Mind you, all they had to do was replace the carpet in one bedroom and the stairs and upstairs hallway. There's only two of them, they don't speak English, and I'm sitting here freaking out about my poor kitten who has been limited to the bathroom.

Don't mind me if I'm a little peeved!

Good grief. Are you sure those guys know what they're doing? I'd be upset too. Maybe you can sneak some toys and treats in the bathroom so Bella can do something else besides wondering what's happening outside.

I would be too. I am sure the cat is fine tough. Probably sleeping. It was horrible when I moved. They knew something wasn't right. It was a long day too. The didn't get settled in the new place till 8:30 at night.

Bella never ceases to amaze me, I'll tell you that. She was in the bathroom for like, 7 hours straight, and I couldn't get upstairs (they were working upstairs) to her. She was just chillin'. I know I worry too much but she's my baby, how can I not?

Kitty will be fine. If only a bit cat-anoyed. As for the workers? Stairs would take a while. I, myself would be annoyed too.

I've installed carpeting. It isn't as easy as some people think.

As for the other issue:

What do you call someone who speaks two languages? Bilingual.
What do you call someone who speaks three language? Trilingual.
What do you call someone who speaks only one language? American.

I've traveled in Europe and the Middle East, and found people in quite humble walks of life who could speak two or three languages. Here I've encountered people who have had five years of Spanish in school and can barely say "Como esta Usted?" (Can't do accents or the upside down question mark.) Some people seem actually proud of having taken X years of a language an not being able to even say 'How do you do?'

Language learning is a natural human faculty. If you can learn one language, you can learn another; it may not be easy, but you can if you want to badly enough.
