Take Your Own Advice

So I’m standing in line at a local resturant that has recently made the conversion from a KFC only establishment to a KFC and Taco Bell combination.  In front of me, a young african-american man was dutifully trying to help a hispanic family with their order.  He was making the additional effort of asking them what sides they wanted by listing off some of the options in Spanish. 

When he was done the father of this family in broken english said ” keeping trying . .  .the more you speak Spanish the easier it gets”.

The More You Speak English The Easier it Gets!!!!
