    (I’m an Asian Spanish/English interpreter in charge of taking care of our Spanish speaking custumers. I approach a Mexican customer.)

    Me: “Good afternoon. How may I help you?”

    Customer: “Oh my god, you speak Spanish!”

    Me: “Yes I do, it’s a service provided by our store for your convenience. How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “But you’re Chinese!”

    Me: “I’m actually Korean born and raised in Argentina, so it’s easier for me to speak in Spanish.”

    Customer: “That’s not possible! Chinese people only speak Chinese!”

    Me: “I assure you I’m not Chinese and cannot speak Chinese at all.”

    Customer: “But…but Chinese people should speak Chinese!”
