    Oklah, just point what you want to eat.

    Yes, sometimes they are too busy.

    They had enough local clients to worry about learning to speak English to serve an odd Ang Moh or two.

    It doesn't surprise me one jot. The Americans have completely, utterly and ruthlessly b*stardised English to a level that is beneath contempt. Many years ago at university we had an American guest lecturer who was the then the senior professor of English at Stamford. He actually apologised for what his countrymen had done to a great language. With that said, English is being b*stardised in the UK too with the illiterate Chavs, laddettes and horrible Thames Valley accent.
