Totally Estúpido! Part 20

, , , , , | Right | April 4, 2022

My college Spanish professor told my class this story in my freshman year. She was in the checkout line at the grocery store, buying tortillas, beans, and a few other staples of Latin-American cuisine, which did not go unnoticed by the man behind her.

Husband: *In Spanish* “She’s taking our food!”

Wife: *Also in Spanish* “It would be better if you didn’t talk.”

Husband: “Look at what she’s buying! That’s our food!”

Wife: “Shut up.”

Husband: “But it’s our food!”

Wife: “Shut up!”

At this point, my professor was done with her transaction, and she turned back to the couple.

Professor: *In perfect Spanish* “Actually, my husband is Guatemalan, so this is our food too.”

The husband turned bright red after getting over his shock that my obviously-not-Latina professor could speak Spanish. The wife nodded approvingly and presumably treated her husband to a rousing “I told you so” lecture.
