Prying customer gets confused.

He asked what race I am, and I said Puerto Rican, because it's easier than spelling it all out.

He responded, "Oh, I bet your momma taught you all the good Hispanic dishes, huh?"

And I said, "My mom is Portuguese."

And he said, "Oh... Your dad taught you, then?"

And I said, "My dad doesn't cook."

He didn't have anything else to say. Dude looked so confused I just busted up laughing.

People are always asking me about my Hispanic dishes. I always disappoint. As does my Portuguese mother.

I just can't do anything right.
