Today, my boss of six months asked me what country I'm from. I'm white and from the southern United States. I'm so quiet, he didn't think I spoke English. FML
Macysdayparade8 tells us more :
Op here. I was just trying to say that there are no obvious signs that I'm not from Georgia/from another country, where most people speak English.

True that the boss should at least know they speak English after that amount of time. But the boss didn't necessarily do the interview for the Op to get hired could have been a manager.

He didn't look like an obvious minority. He's just proving his boss had no excuse for thinking something so ignorant. Obviously his boss wasn't paying any attention to him.


There are lots of Caucasians that don't speak English though. I grew up around a lot of German speakers and they would often be very quite because they felt uncomfortable speaking English as it was often broken. Maybe OP's boss figured OP spoke German or polish or something. They could have simply asked why OP is often so quite, rather than assume a reason. However I also don't see what difference being white makes in this particular FML.

Thing is, if you are white, you migth not look exotic (except if eyes and body are particular).
What I think OP is tryingto say is basically that when you look ath him/her, nothing seems to indicate she/he would not speak english.

You could really have fun with this OP. Pretend to be from a different country. Talk with a foreign accent. Or speak a completely different language! You could become a whole new person!
