  • This doesn't happen to me. At least not in real life.

    I guess you have to tell them you don't speak Spanish in Spanish. Maybe they will finally understand.

  • I've had an old lady speaking to me in Turkish once. And a Jewish woman who told me a phrase in Hebrew but in both cases I just smiled lol.
    I don't live in the US so in France most people don't mistake me for a Latina since Latinas/os are very rare in France compared to Africans, Arabs, Asians and Southern + Eastern Europeans.
    I had to convince a guy in my University that I wasn't Jewish though, on 3 occasions he asked me from which side of my family I was Jewish the first time, then he asked me if I celebrated Shabbat 2nd time and 3rd time he asked me if I was practicing. The 3 times I told him I wasn't but I don't know lol my Jewish friend told me that he might of thought I was partially Jewish or something that's why he insisted.
