(I work as a hostess in a popular summer beach town. In this town in particular, there are a lot of J-1 Student Visa workers, mostly from central and eastern Europe.)

Me: “Hello, can I help you?”

Applicant: “Hi, I was wondering if you were hiring anyone.”

Me: “We’re actually fully staffed right now, but you can always leave your application with us in case something changes.”  

(I hand her an application, she fills it out, thanks me and leaves. I begin looking over the application when my coworker approaches.)

Coworker: “What was that about?”

Me: “Someone was just applying for a job… oh look, they’re from Macedonia!  Cool!”

Coworker: “Macedonia? So, doesn’t that just mean they’re natives of Massachusetts?”

Me: “…Sure, let’s go with that.”
