Me: Where is your accent from?
I am from Spain.
Me: Oh, the first guy I talk to from Spain. What do you do?
I’m a Software Engineer for Adobe.
Me: Oh, I didn’t realize they were here, also. They’re one of the older companies.
Yes, we’re on 6th and Townsend in San Francisco.
Me: Oh, ok…what do you like best about your job?
I like that we get to work with a lot of different companies….everyone uses Adobe. How about you? Where are you from originally?
Me: I am from Mexico, my parents came here when I was 8 months.
Oh! well then why are you making me struggle with my English (and he started talking in Spanish) I have an uncle who lives in Mexico City and he loves it! He keeps telling me to come visit. Just today he posted this on Facebook. His uncle said he got in a taxi and the taxi driver asked him where he was from and if he liked it. When he answered he was from Spain and that yes, he liked it, the taxi driver replied, “Oh, well, that’s not surprising – the Spaniards loved it when they first came 500 years ago”.
