When our landlady comes into our place she always brings a relative. She visits with repair people, or most often it's a family member doing repairs. When they talk to us, they use fluent English. When they talk to each other, they use their native tongue, which they know we don't understand. I feel this is disrespectful, rude and shady.
How can I politely say to them that if they don't want me to know what they are saying, or they don't want me to be part of the full conversation, then they can leave my home to have their conversation?
Being cut in and out of a conversation that is related to me and my home gets aggravating quickly. It feels like they are hiding things. If we could move we would. We are already in the courts with them - one case settled in our favour and 3 pending. Based on previous behavior I just don't trust them. I don't want them to claim racism, which is why I've kept my mouth shut. I just find this behavior so rude because we do share a fluent language. I live in Canada.
