Thank you NCB for eliminating the spanish alternative selection. I wish the country would eliminate the spanish language alternative everywhere for evrything.

I think all illegal aliens should be returned to their country of origin immediately. The Federal government has failed us on this issue, both Republicans & Democrats. They take jobs from Americans and lower wages because they are willing to work for less.

Let us build the wall, and agressively find & return the illegals to their home countries. That should be the Federal policy.

I agree that it irritating to have to go through the extra step but what do we do for the tourists. When we go to Cancun there are English options for things. Why cant we have spanish options

Stay with the traffic reports buddy. Y'all are the best at those.

Re-read the column. Spanish is not being eliminated from the ATM menu. The menu is just being re-worked so that Enligh becomes the default language, which is as it should be.

Mr Dyer also is correct when he says "we should sweat the small stuff". If you don't it soon becomes Big Stuff.

Hey, moron...just because someone speaks spanish does not mean they are an illegal alien. Between you and Betamax, you are just a tad more ignorant than BetaTroll.

thank god for this article. there is nothing else of importance going on in the world. lets worry about having options on ATMs. added bonus of putting racism and xenophobia on the front burner. way to go bobbo.

Jeebus, Bob (and that reader from Silver Lake) is a completely self-absorbed jackass.

NCB has had ATMs for months prior to his idiotic column that do exactly what the reader from Silver Lake described. The one on East in Tallmadge and the one on Buchholzer in Akron, as well as the one on Portage in the Falls all did this for a long time.

If they actually think it was Dyer's column that precipitated the change at the Graham Rd. ATM, they seem to be ascribing to Bob a much greater influence than he truly has. I wouldn't be surprised if the Graham Rd. ATM had been doing what it was observed to be doing by the reader for a while - it's just that the reader may not have noticed before.

If that's the case, then that says a lot more about xenophobic columns, columnists, and readers than anything.

I went to a Key ATM this morning, and I had to press the English/Spanish button.

And THEN...I had to press a button if I wanted a receipt or not.

If that wasn't enough, I also had to press a button....if I....wanted another transaction.*sob*

OH THE HORROR! MY WHOLE DAY IS RUINED! How can I ever get anything done today with all those extra button presses!??

I forgot to add, during all the extra time I spent at that ATM with it's fancy-schmancy buttons I had to press, I was mugged like 5 times.

They (Mexicans) are quick to say "we have our own country", but why in the H do they keep sneaking out of their own country, coming here and wanting us to conform to them, sick and tired of them to be completely honest.

I'm glad you're being so truthful.
I hate the way those Mexicans are always saying that too.
We're like, "Hey man, learn English."
And they're all like, "Eye hav my ownn cooontry."
They are always saying that.

It pisses me off to no end.

We should just annex that sand pit. That way, all of the jobs and companies that we've moved there would be ours again. Plus, we'd have lots of donkeys painted like zebras and no end to our supply of chiclets.

Sheesh, some of you all are lazy. It takes what, 2 extra seconds to hit a button. OMG! you're gonna die!!

In a way I agree with some people, but in another I don't. My neighbor is Cuban, and she knows not a wink of English, which is annoying. I do believe that in order to live here, you need to learn English. Her husband knows a little, and her son knows more of course. She's here illegally. Now that I don't agree on.

They need to get strict about that.

But you also have tourists. Yea, some people like to vacation in US, why, I dont know, but thats not the point. Because like Dave Bucsh said, when he was in Spain, they had different languages on the ATM.

When you travel abroad including Mexico...you better speak the language. They are not there to accomodate you and I'm not here to accomodate them. English...english....english! Thank god for once I picked the right institution. Cudos NCB!

I've noticed that some National City ATMs have had a separtate Continue in Spanish button for awhile.

And National City, Fifth Third, and I'm sure other banks allow you to set up ATM preferences online so you can pick the default language, default receipt settings, default withdrawal account & amount, etc.

Since banks don't use the same ATM hardware in every location, it's not suprising that they have different software on some ATMs.
