    Havana Clue What She’s Talking About

    | Montana, USA | Language & Words

    (I have lived in the US for five years, but I still speak with a slight accent.)

    Me: “Did you find everything alright?”

    Customer: “Can someone else help me, please?”

    Me: “I’m sorry?”

    Customer: “I want someone who isn’t Mexican to help me. You already took enough jobs, thank you very much.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m not Mexican.”

    Customer: “Yes, yes you are!” *reads my name tag* “Maria is such a Mexican name!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m Portuguese.”

    Customer: “Oh, Mexico, Portugal, Costa Rica. It’s all the same. You come into our country and steal all of our jobs. Just because you’ve hopped the fence doesn’t give you the right to be here!”

    Me: “Ma’am, Portugal is in Europe. It’s located next to Spain. We speak Portuguese there. It is impossible to hop across an ocean and into the US.”

    Customer: “Go back to Castro then, communist!”
