So, this kind of ticked me off. A few days ago, I was waiting for the public bus, heading to a park with my friend. Even though it was a weekday, the bus stop was packed with older folks who probably wanted to take advantage of the sunshine. So finally one of the smaller buses stopped in front of … Continue reading “Speak English”
