Haha. Well I hope you get the job and LOL at them assuming you didn’t know Spanish. πŸ™‚ It is always funny when people make those types of assumptions.

LOL. I guess you should take it as a compliment on your beauty.

 

Edit Good luck!

Love it! I’m half Cuban, but don’t necessarily look like it in the wintertime (no tan, blah, blah), so this kind of thing happens to me, too, every now and then. The look on their faces when I come back at them that I’ve totally understood what they’ve been saying is always priceless!

Haha!  That happened to me several times when I was living in Japan.  No one thought I spoke Japanese until I replied to them…  Then again, it happened to me and some of my friends a few times when we were talking about Japanese people in English.

Hurrah for funny stories!

@Miss Fish:

HA! There are certainly worse things that could be said when people think you don’t know their language!! 

Good luck with the job!

I hope you get the job! I’m glad you overheard them say something sweet like that, sometimes langauge barriers can result in some very akward positions. And who know, speaking Spanish will be a huge advantage, especially since your bosses know it too Smile

Brilliant! I was only halfway through when I thought “I hope she responded in Spanish…” but that was even better. Congrats on the new job!

I want to study Spanish this winter, and that totally made my day and encouraged me to go for it!

I hope you get the job πŸ™‚
