Incheon Further Away From The Answer, Part 2

, , , , , | Right | September 26, 2010

(I’m an Asian Spanish/English interpreter in charge of taking care of our Spanish-speaking customers. 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!”
