Her Racist Neighbor Told Her To Speak “English Only”, She Refused And So The Neighbor Called The Cops!

This woman’s next-door neighbor got all up in her business, and then demanded that she speak in English rather than her native tongue. The woman refused, and this neighbor was the one who looked dumb. Here’s what happened.

They lived in England

“My husband and I moved to a flat near a city center in England,” she shared. “It’s a rather nice area. Our next-door neighbor has her balcony next to ours.”

English wasn’t their first language

The woman is Polish, while her husband is half-Spanish and half-Polish. At home, they speak a mix of Polish, Spanish, and English.

It sounded aggressive

She admits that Spanish and Polish are very fast languages compared to English. So they can sound a little aggressive to people who don’t speak or understand the languages.

The woman has had plenty of first-hand experience with these types of reactions. “I’ve had people assume I was angry because of how the language sounded to them, when I was having a completely pleasant conversation,” she shared.

And it happened again recently. Her neighbor heard the couple talking over the balcony and thought they were fighting. “She approached me and asked me, concerned, if I was okay,” said the woman. “I was confused, and she explained that she’d heard our arguments.”

The woman laughed it off and assured her neighbor that everything was cool. “This was just the way the language sounded sometimes,” she explained. The neighbor said okay but didn’t seem completely convinced.

“I told my husband, we laughed, and decided to speak a bit more quietly just in case,” explained the woman. The couple didn’t think it would be an issue again.

But this drama was just getting started. The next day, the couple had an unexpected visit from two police officers. “Someone had called them with concerns about my well-being.”

The couple explained the situation, and the police understood. Still, it was an embarrassing and humiliating experience for the happy couple.

A few days later, the nosy neighbor showed up again. “My neighbor approached me again, and I repeated that we weren’t arguing, and she had to let it go,” she said.

The neighbor had a suggestion. “She told me she wouldn’t have to worry if we switched to English.” The woman said to get lost; nobody had the right to tell her what languages she could and couldn’t speak in her own home.

She recorded them

Again, the woman thought that was the end of it. But it wasn’t. The neighbor made a secret recording of the couple talking and then shared it on a neighborhood WhatsApp group, telling everyone that the woman next door was trapped in an abusive relationship.

Everyone in the group chat agreed and posted some awful things about the couple. Then another Polish speaker saw the chat and explained that the couple was not fighting. Humiliated, the neighbor deleted the post.

What happened next was shocking. Rather than taking accountability for her actions and apologizing, the neighbor stormed over to next door’s apartment and blamed the woman and her husband. “She accused us of doing it on purpose to toy with her.”

The neighbor had been warned

“I told her I explained it many times, but she wouldn’t listen. She kept shouting and calling me names,” she said. There was only one thing she could do: she shut the door in the neighbor’s face.

There was tension

Now, the situation is super tense between the neighbors. And this woman is wondering if she should be the bigger person just to make this problem disappear. “Should I switch to English to avoid the whole situation? It would be an easy fix. Am I the jerk here?” she asked.

People showed their support

“This is a hard no,” said one person. “You shouldn’t have to switch to her language just because she can’t stay out of other people’s business.”

“Recording you without permission, then posting it to other people and making wild accusations? You should be reporting her for harassment,” suggested another.
