Do you think it's rude?

Hey all. I went on a estimate today and while there meeting with the home owners (who are foreign btw) they liked or seemed to like everything I said. About halfway through talking to them, they start speaking to each other in their language and then tell me at the end that they will let me know by Monday what they want to do. Yes I know, I've heard the "Ill let you know by XX date" countless times. My question is: Does anyone think its rude when the potential customers start speaking to each other in their language in front of you?

Yes. Extremely rude as if they can't say it in front of you in a language you can understand its probably not something they should be saying at all

Most of the foreign people like that here are doctors and want you to work for free anyways. But don't mind charging you your next unborn child each time you step in their office
