I really don't want to write about this, but the recent event just leaves me no choice but to vent it somewhere. I will try not to be too cynical.
It is so childish what some people would do or say to try to show his superiority (if he truly is superior) for the purpose of winning his business. I don't provide translation for a living and I don't hinder others from getting their business. I do however occassionally work as an interpreter for the school districts near me when I have some free time, but that's only as a hobby. So what does a school district in the US look like? In the US, public schools belong to school districts. For example, the school district that I am in consists of six public elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. There are 2 school districts near ours. They have about the same number of elementary schools, middle schools and high schools as ours. Each city has one school district. Depending on where you live, you could be in the neighboring city's school district, rather than your own city's. So the service I provide will cover roughly 27 schools for 3 school districts near me.
