Don't "Press One For English."
For all we Americans, who do not like the idea of becoming a bilingual nation, I have an idea. Refuse to "Press One For ENGLISH." If it's not bad enough listening to a foreign message telling the caller to press one for Spanish, some companies actually have the gall to ask the caller to "Press one for English." If that's not flagrant hostility, it's flagrant ignorance, and I don't have time for either one. If they want your business badly enough, let's have them ask for it in English.
