What kind of accent is that?

I have a little rant to make….when you call a German company or any other company for that matter where English is not the primary language….there is no need to use some strange German accent to help the person you are talking to understand you.

Freaking hilarious how often I hear people use broken, accented and loud English to speak to a person who is fluent, but English is not their primary language. I guess the person talking thinks this is helpful?

That is some funny stuff! I hear it all of the time, here in Miami. Spanish is spoken by more than 50% of the population. It is hilarious to hear someone who speaks English, speaking to a Spanish speaker, using some kind of accent.

I don't think it is meant as any kind of disrespect.

No I don't think they are being disrepectful, however I don't think it really helps either. ;)

It definitely doesn't help, but at least they can hear what someone is saying, better and louder.
