Totally Estupido

, , , | Learning | October 1, 2015

(I am getting started in my Spanish 1 class during freshman year. It is worth noting that our high school is pretty much a compilation of three other middle schools, so many of the students don’t know much about each other, nor the traditions of all the other middle schools.)

Teacher: “Does anyone know any full sentences in Spanish?”

Me: *raises hand* “I can say the Pledge of Allegiance.” *begins saying the Pledge in Spanish*

Student: *interrupts* “Wait, wait! Why the f*** are you saying the Pledge in Spanish?”

Me: “Um… because some of the kids in our school didn’t even know English. We said the Pledge in Spanish and English in the mornings.”

Student: “But they’re in f***ing America! They should know how to speak English! It’s SO stupid to say the pledge of allegiance in Spanish.”

Me: “If it’s so f***ing stupid for you to say the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish, then why are you bothering to learn Spanish in America?”

Other Student: *plays MLG air-horn sound from his phone*

(The student dropped the class. I wasn’t punished for my cursing. Best start to freshman year ever.)
