I was speculating what the N stood for. Am I nearly unreasonable?

Why would she tell someone with limited English to "go and find somebody who can speak English"? Confused.

Because she wants them to inyerpret for her.

Im sure she may have sounded abrupt but theres no point woffling at someone who cant speak English

I hate people like that.why cant people have patience,most of the time myself and the person im trying to talk to end up laughing about it trying to work each other out.i only get someone else if its impossible to communicate but i get someone who works with me not make them get someone because i think it lets the person know that they are welcome and i just dont share their language but there are people who do in the place so they arent an outsider to us
