Today, a man on the train asked me if i had any change. I quickly responded with "no habla engles". He then tapped me on the shoulder and said "That would've been a lot more believable if you weren't reading that paper." FML

It could also be "you speak" depending on what dialect is being used and to whom OP was talking.

I love when people try to make someone look bad, and end up looking like a dumbass moron because they're wrong in their correction. Yes, I'm talking to you #143. You need to go back to school. *shakes head*

No it wouldn't. When referring to oneself in the present tense one says 'hablo'. "Yo no hablo inglés" is the most technically correct way to say 'I don't speak English' but the 'yo' is generally implied so as pointed out "no hablo inglés" is valid. "No habla inglés" translates as "he/she does not speak English".

Engles. Is it pronounced like eggls but with an N? I did not know this Spanish word! Also, habla is in reference to a he/she. The correct way to say it is, "No hablo ingles." (I know it has an accent mark. Keyboard doesn't allow that option.)

I live between a Veterans Affairs Hospital and a liqour store so I see bums pretty much constantly.

No need to ignore them or feel shame for them or treat them like anything less than a human being.

When anyone I dont know asks me for money, I look em in the eye and say "nope."

Excuses are bullshit. Ignoring is bullshit.

Funny thing is ,it really won't matter if he/she gets it right, just sound like like they know it.

If the person could notice the error then they probably will embarrass the person by asking for change IN Spanish.
