(My mother-in-law is Hispanic. His step-father is not, but is a small business owner and has employed many South and Central Americans over the years in the Los Angeles area.)

*Father-in-law walks into the room*

Me: Hola. (Translation: Hello)

F.i.L.: What?

(I assume that he didn’t hear me, as his hearing is going so I speak louder)

Me: HOLA! Como Estas? (Translation: Hello. How are you?)

*blank look*

Me: Que Pasa? (Raises an eyebrow)(Translation: What’s up?)

F.i.L: Oh, I never saw the point in learning any Spanish. What did you say?

Me: Que?! (What?!)
