Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about angering a coworker for not speaking English during a break.
I’m Polish, working in multicultural rather friendly office. This morning I was in our staff room with another Polish guy and one Somalian. We had a little conversation with my friend in Polish until my very upset English coworker entered the room and started complain about us.
I tried to tell her that we are on our break, and there’s no need to switch for English as we talking about computers. Our Somalian friend started laughing and said that he doesn’t mind. The English coworker shouted that she won’t have the break with people like us saying that’s f___kin’ rude and slammed the door at us.
