    Greetings,

    In the same film, the man who is moving house gets angry at the workers and says, “What (kind of) way to do a job is this?”

    How would one say this in Colloquial Persian, please?

    This is what I thought I heard:
    “این چه طرز کار کردنه؟”
    Is it correct, please?

    I'm a bit hesitant about this as I think one would say:
    “این چه طرزیه؟”
    Please note the ی here: “این چه طرزیه؟”

    But in “این چه طرز کار کردنه؟” there is no ی. Can it perhaps be left out?

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    Yes.
    این چه طرزِ کارکردنیه is common also

    Other examples:
    این چه طرز غذا خوردنیه؟
    این چه طرز راه رفتنه؟
    این چه طرزِ نشستنهِ؟
    .
    .
    They all mean, there is something odd, wrong, impolite to do...

    این چه طرز کار کردنه؟ is completely right.

    این چه طرزشه؟

    Many thanks, most helpful. Attempting to put things together, could the following be right?

    این چه طرز غذا خوردنیه؟ - more an exclamation than a question, rather rude.

    این چه طرز غذا خوردنه؟ - more a question than an exclamation, less impolite.

    هر دو یکسان هستند
    این عبارت نشان دهنده ی اینست که شخص مورد نظر، مشغولِ خوردنِ غذا به شیوه ای غیر عادی(عجیب، بی ادبانه، یا حتی خنده دار) است. نمی توان با دیدن این عبارتِ تنها(این چه ظرزِ غذا خوردنه؟) به احساس گوینده(تعجب، خشم یا خنده) پی برد

    I prefer این چه طرز/طرز غذا خوردنه؟ and I believe you will hear it much more.
