just happened to me today while buying dinner. I ordered 2 burgers and the guy (who was suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper sweet btw, I hope his new business is a success) asked me if the 2 were for me so I was like "yeah I'm hungry because of the ramadan" and then he said "you're arab?" and when I told him I was tunisian he said he thought I was hispanic or something lmao and then his friend (who was also tunisian) started talking to me in arabic. I hate it when people suddenly ask me to speak in another language, I alway forget my words. I sounded dumb.
but anyway, it's not the 1st time someone mistaken me as a hispanic girl/latina.
