A.na.ca.ra You mean other than having lived in Australia for a number of years, dating Greeks from Kew (where the majority lived at the time) and having to learn Greek to speak to their parents, who knew no English, and listen to the kids talk about how nobody spoke English among first generation immigrants? Gosh I must have just made it all up. That’s where I got that F*cking idea. I LIVED there. Spoke to people. Dated that community. Was engaged and involved. Knew the parents. That’s how. If you want to fling shite, have a it. That’s how we end up in useless stupid arguments. We all write from our knowledge base. You may not agree but flinging crap at someone says a great deal more about you rather than me. You had the option to ask me politely. That’s what’s called mature conversation. I have no problem with a challenge but not if it’s lobbed with vitriol. That part of Kew may have changed since I lived there, but the fact still is that in many parts of the world first-arrival immigrants like many Mexicans in America never master the language. The point stands. As does your totally uncalled for rude response. Wholly unnecessary.
