Spanish phrases for the Landscaping Industry

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by mowpart rep, Aug 17, 2006.


Should mowpart.com take "Spanish Phrases for the Landscape Industry" book off site?

  1. Yes, Take the book off the site

  2. I don't care either way

  3. No I believe if used properly it should be made available

    So by selling this book, you're endorsing the employment of illegals.

    Remind me to NOT visit your site, or buy anything from you, ever.

    i think that may be a touch extreme there 5.0. i think english should be spoken in the us, but what will be, will be. or "que sera, sera" if you prefer.

    It want matter if you hire them or not somebody else will, they are here to stay whether we like it or not. This country has so many different breeds it want be long they are going to have to come up with new nationalities. There want be any thoroughbreds left in the United States they will all be mutts.

    It's not a bad idea, I wish I knew more spanish. Besides, not all LEGAL immagrants know English that well.

    Its a HORRIBLE idea!!! :hammerhead:

    It has US learning THEIR language - the exact opposite of the way it should be.

    Try this...
    Make a Spanish-to-English book that we can give to the employees, cheaply of course. :)

    I could care less about all the illegal crap....

    $24.99 !!???

    Seems a tad on the "ridiculously expensive side for a book" to me.

    The only phrase I need to convey to any non english speaking person is go away. Employee or not,you cant walk the walk if you cant talk the talk.
