The one minute, 18 seconds video started with the cafe owners identifying themselves as Uzma and Dia and went on to call forward their manager who they mentioned had worked with them for nine years.
The video recorder then focused on the manager who appeared on the scene in a dark suit with both hands locked at his waist region, a posture that somewhat depicted humility.
One of the cafe owners, Dia then asks him how many English classes he had taken. To which the manager responded that in the course of a year and a half he had taken three courses in English.
Uzma then requested that he spoke English to everyone. The ladies burst into laughter as the manager speaks in English as they had requested.

Another user @farrahraja praised him for his professionalism saying:
"Outright mean and disgusting. He seemed extremely professional the way he dealt with their cheap, low self esteem issues."
"Why r they mocking the poor guy? He might not know how to speak good English but obviously knows his job well. Otherwise, why will they keep him for 5 years?"
