Aww that is so cute, and people say the foreign workers are mistreated at SFNE. What a touching story, especially about how when she first started she didnt know what push botton meant.

AJ, how about we send you to Russia and see how well you speak their language?

I actually know some Russian, thank you. And your sports teams suck. Stay in Chicago and shovel snow.

So you know some Russian - do you know the Russian phrase for "Push the button"?

Besides, as I should have noted in my original post, what does her lack of English speaking skills have to do with the fact that she was going to be an engineer in Russia? Last time I checked, Russian engineers spoke (gasp) RUSSIAN.

As for your comments on Chicago weather and sports teams -- that was quite a convincing argument. What will be your next retort? Will you tell me my mom wears combat boots?

Well my job at Great America led to my meeting my wife...

Let's see: I worked there, went to a club after work with a coworker and met friends who got me hired at a company that gave me the experience I needed to get a job at my next company that gave me the experience I needed to get my next company which moved to San Diego and hired my then future wife. True story.

Thanks Great America! ;)

The fact remains that SFNE has had major heartache with the foreign workers. AND...magically this story appears in the headlines, during the height of 'recruiting season'. Coincidence. Not. This is from industry experience. SFNE does not have a good reputation for their workers now, and they needed a 'happy ending' story.

Not only did a girl who was too dim to comprehend that those bottons need pushing get engaged, she got engaged to the, gasp, some nice young man in charge of , sit down for this folks, the foreign students. I am suprised. Exasperated. If that word is too big, just say 'suprised' again.

Yes, a success story. But for 2 people. There are 1998 other employees who would tell another tale of life at SF. And for the record, I have never seen that guy's moms' boots. Never.
