    Well I find it annoying also. I have friends that speak english but they would try to add a different langauge into their sentences. I just doesn't sound right and they still do it to this day...

Especially if you understand what the wannabes are saying.
    lol. Wannabes, hmm? Well, I don't think you should insult them. I think you should be flattered with the mere fact of them trying to be what you are. But I do see how it could get annoying. I hate wannabes. I love the Japanese culture and love learning its language, but I'd never try to "be" japanese. I know I can't. And when people "pretend" to be what they are not. It gets annoying as hell. And amusing. But you still should not talk about them like that. That's mean

    lol.

    I'm entitled to my views as much as they are. If the guy thought he was making a good impression, good for him. I didn't think so. I'm pretty certain everyone else in the shop who wasn't familiar with the Japanese language fell for his act. It's just as annoying as hearing people try to speak with an American or English accent and not succeeding. I always think to myself, why can't Malaysians just speak with regular Manglish accents? I do that with my M'sian friends, and by no means do I sound terrifyingly fobby.

    Then again, if you want to sound funny you're welcome to.

    Yeah, I'm gonna break out the old korean accent, me no think so, heheheheheeh. They wanna butcher a language, it's their right to. Nobody owns a language, so I say go ahead and try and say those few words you do know, annoy people if you want to, it's your right. I've been annoyed many times, you don't see me complaining.
    Attitude of AO MODS, according to beast
    Because they have obtained that level they are arrogant. You have to kep in mind when you talk about these guys they are kind of dorks who probably didn't excel at much and this is their only outlet to flex their muscles. Their egos would suffer no less so the the forum suffers some more. Watch one way or another they will probably repond to this post with a threat. But there are better forums out there.

    I'm not really complaining its just that its hard to know what their saying sometimes if they pronouce it wrong. I sometimes randomly say foreign sentences but at least I make sure there said right. But hey, I guess it won't hurt to try right?

    I disagree. It's not someone's 'right' to annoy anyone.

    If saying these little words annoy people, then it's not like they can stop you. Freedom of speech takes affect here, you can't censor them. I will agree to annoy people is wrong, but what are you gonna do, punch them???? File a police report and go through the trouble for one incident?????

    I will agree it's not something that should be done, but what can we do.

    Live with it, hate them if you want.
