    Es-pwñ-ol, Part 2

    | San Diego, CA, USA | Language & Words

    (My coworker is Mexican, but has very fair skin. Our store has more than 60,000 item numbers. While the employees who work in certain sections know the products and the numbers in their area, cashiers have to look the numbers up in the computer.)

    Customer: “Hi. I was wondering what the price on this item is.”

    Coworker: “Of course. Let me just look up the number for you.”

    Customer: *to her friend in Spanish* “Can you believe this dumb b****? Can’t even tell me the price for this stupid thing.”

    Coworker: *in Spanish* “The price for that is [price]. Can I help you with anything else?”

    (The customer turned white and quickly walked away!)
