I Hispanic and have a faint lisp that sometimes causes my words to slur. One night, I was ordering dinner at a local fast food place. As I was giving my order, my lisp-slur appeared and I apologized

Me: “Ugh! Sorry; I don’t speak English.”

Cashier: “Sorry? Do you only speak Spanish?”

Me: “Actually, my first language is English,and I am learning Spanish. I have a lisp that sometimes causes my words to not come out right.”

A mischievous look entered his eyes and a half grin on his face.

Cashier: “Thorry? What did you thay?”

At first, I was so shocked that I did not know what to say. I was not offended and ended up laughing.
