Rant against Midtown restaurant workers speaking Spanish goes viral

A restaurant worker tries to explain to customer who delivered a strongly-worded tirade over workers speaking Spanish

His primary complaint to the manager of the Fresh Kitchen appears to be that some employees speak Spanish to each other while preparing his lunch.

The restaurant's manager told The New York Daily News the ranting customer didn't realize the woman speaking Spanish with his employee was a regular.

Though the exact provenance of the word "Manhattan", which the man says during his rant, might be in dispute, it should be noted that it is derived from the Native American Algonquian languages, not English.

The employee maintained his composure as the George Wallace of Midtown continued to babble, saying, "I will be following up, and my guess is, they're not documented".

He then said this about the people who clearly had jobs and were just trying to do them: "If they have the balls to come here and live off my money-I pay for their welfare". I paid for their welfare, I paid for their ability to be here.

The irate man told the manager that his next move was to alert U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and get them to raid the restaurant. "The least they could do is speak English". "At first it was, wow, you're bullying someone that you feel superior to for no reason", the woman said. "He stormed out." Despite how infuriating the man's comments were, "He's a customer, so I had to stay professional and ask him to leave", the manager also said. If you love this country this much!
