FML - The follow-up

Today, while I was shopping, a girl walked past me and said, "Hola!" I'm Indian. FML

Hey everyone, OP here! I just wanted to take this opportunity to explain a few things: 1) I am a female (not that it matters), and I am "India Indian" haha. 2) The reason why I was so offended by it was because she said it in almost a mocking tone. I also didn't like that she took one look at me and assumed that I was Mexican (not that there's anything wrong with being Mexican). I just don't believe in classifying people by how they look and automatically assuming they're a part of a certain ethnicity. 3) I have been taking Spanish for 3-4 years, so I can speak Spanish quite well. And I'm also so glad this got posted :)

People sometimes assume I speak Spanish. I don't. I'm of Portuguese descent so I'm a shade darker than most "white" people. No one's ever assumed I speak Portuguese, but that's okay because I don't speak Portuguese either. I don't think this is something worth getting upset about, personally.

Maybe I'm in the minority thinking this but mistakes happen. We don't know what you look like, and how obvious it would have been for her to tell. She was just trying to be polite I'm sure.
