Everyone in the store at this moment was Caucasian, and none speak *fluent* Spanish.

I am ringing up a customer in her 60s who asks for cigarettes. I look at my coworker by the case of cigarettes, to see if he will get them for my customer.

Coworker: Uno?

Me: Por favor.

Customer: Oh, parlez-vous francais!

Me: o.O Uh, no, that’s Spanish. French would be s’il vous plait.

Customer: I’m really getting old!

How you could mix up such different languages is beyond me.
