    (I am one of two white people joining an all-Spanish department. No one realizes I am bilingual.)

    Coworker: “Hi, how are you today?”

    Me: “Fine, and you?”

    Coworker: “Okay.”

    (She turns to one of the others and jerks her head towards me.)

    Coworker: *in Spanish* “She’s a fat pig.”

    (I whip around and jerk my head towards her.)

    Me: *in Spanish* “…and she’s an ignorant moron.” *in English* “You have a nice day.”

    (The ignorant moron hasn’t stopped sucking up to me since!)
