Neighbors will bring in all sorts of issues. But these ones had something creative in mind.

They made this guy their translator!

They kept bothering him to be their Chinese expert and he was not having it!

Let’s check out the full story.

AITA for telling my British neighbors they should learn Chinese because we live in china?

I’m Albanian and I live in Guangzhou China.

He had some weird neighbors..

I live in an apartment building that’s filled with mostly Chinese people and one British couple.

They’ve been here 3 years longer than I have and can’t say anything other than NIHAO and XIEXIE.

They keep bothering him to be their translator.

They constantly knock on my door or call me to translate Chinese stuff to which I told them to stop and start learning Chinese.

I taught myself to be half fluent in Chinese before I got my work assignment and learnt the rest in the 6 months I’ve been here.

They managed to get by because some of the staff spoke basic English but they left.

I told them that they’ve been here for several years and should be at least conversational in Chinese.

Yeah Chinese is hard but its inconsiderate and rude to not put any effort into learning Chinese.

And they didn’t receive it well.

I told them I’m never translating for them again and they lost their s**t saying I’m an a*****e and I’m making their lives difficult.

I told them I’ll start speaking to them in Chinese and Albanian from now on

HAHAH! That was a reply they didn’t see coming!

Now they might have to actually start learning the language.

Let’s check out what folks on Reddit think about this story.

The British couple can clearly do with some new words!
