    This morning I asked a question to someone outside Whole Foods. She said "I no understand", and looked at me like DUH, why don't you speak Spanish? I thought of this thread.

    Funny thing happened at post office a while ago.

    While I was waiting for the post office employee (a black woman) to fix my request, a Hispanic woman blunders in and asks a long, complex question to the post office employee, in Spanish. After the flood stops, the black woman blankly stares at the Hispanic woman and then says: "I don't speak Spanish." Hispanic woman briskly turns around and leaves the post office. Black woman then looks at me and says: "And we don't have brown paper bags, either."

    (No my request wasn't about brown paper bags :-) )

    Yeahhh... they get mad when people don't speak Spanish.

    This is when you have to start reading White Dade.

    Hoppie, that's an AWESOME story. So good it almost sounds like a scripted joke.
