Se Habla Eh-spañol


| Cortland, NY, USA | Working | March 6, 2013

(I’m waiting in line at a coffee shop. It’s located about two hours from the Canadian border. In front of me is a man with a large group of people. Note: this takes place in mid-May, while Canada Day is July 1.)

Cashier:  “Hi, can I help you?”

Man: “Um, hold on a second…”

(The man turns to the group of people with him and begins talking to them in what is clearly Spanish. From their accents, I figure out they’re from Spain. The Spanish-speaking people tell the man what they want and then he translates it into English for the cashier.  As you can imagine, this takes a while. Once I make it to the front of the line…)

Cashier: “Sorry for the wait.”

Me: “No problem, I’m sure that was difficult. I’ve never seen such a large group of foreigners around here before.”

Cashier: “Yeah, that was weird…”  *pauses to think* “Must be because it’s Canada Day!”
