Quoting JoAnna &hearts's Jett:" I'm Mexican and no I don't at all. I don't speak with an accent. I don't like most Mexican foods. ... [snip!] ... I just don't like the fact that when someone sees me they automatically start speaking Spanish to me. It just bothers me."
The ladies at my daughter's old daycare were filipino..they spoke to my daughter in..."tah-gal-ic"..no matter how many times i told them she doesn't know it, they'd speak to me in it-- i told them sooo many times i was adopted (my parents are white, etc) and it would blow their miiiinds that i didn't know how to make "chicken adobo". Ha, i think some people will just assume things regardless of anything
