Default Lost in translation??

Unless something was lost in translation, this does not sound like something a British HR manager would say, they are far more eloquent with insults.

"...she started insulting me, saying that I was an animal and that I come from a hungry nation that came to this country to beg,” the husband said."

That's exactly the first thing I thought of too.

Vindictive bastard husband of a lazy wife.

The thing with insults is anyone can claim anything.

Like the British tourist who was accused by a 20 yr old Pakistani salesman of coming to his store and cursing the Prophet.

There is no way to prove what was said, and obviously no punishments handed out for false claims.

There is a risk of confusing British WASP to a British citizen, an example being the three British lads released for dealing drugs who would not fit into an Arabs interpretation of a typical British person.
