More Obsession With English

People are seriously obsessed with English in this country. Need I link to the t-shirts again? In the middle of speaking in Hebrew, someone will just – without warning – say one phrase or part of a sentence in English. I cannot figure out why, which phrases they choose to translate, and at what point their brain says, “Hey, I’m gonna say this in another language!” I witnessed this at least 10 times today.

Sorry that this will be in transliteration but kacha zeh

“Nimas li mi’zeh! Nimas li mi’zeh! Im hu mamsheech la’asot et zeh…? Den heet deh road Jeck!”

Umm…did you just spend the weekend in Motown or something?
