Recently two funny things have been said to me that I must tell you about. Believe me I’ve said my share of stupid things so I’m not laughing at them, but laughing with them!
#1 – at the place where you get your fingerprints. The man knew ours was for adoption and our convo went like this:
Man: So, where are you adopting from?
Man: Do you speak Spanish?
Me: No not very well. Just a few words.
Man: Oh that’s too bad.
Me: Well they don’t speak Sanish, they speak creole.
Man: Oh no, they speak everything.
Me: yeah some speak French
Man: Oh they speak everything, English, French, Spanish, Chinese … everything
End of Conversation.
#2 – checking into hospital – woman was helping us out and talking to Fedna. I told her she was from Haiti and didn’t understand us. She then asked if she spoke “African”!
