Sitting at work, scrolling through my phone.
New girl : *points at phone on the table* is that your phone?
Me : *stares at phone on the table* *looks at my phone in my hand* *stares again* ….. No.
Pls lawd don’t lemme fall into the stupid hairstylist stereotype.
I walked into school tonight, saw I was booked to do a pedicure and walked out. I did not sign up to touch some stranger’s feet. Nope.
So I’m at work and I’m putting this old guy’s info in the computer. He reaches over the desk, grabs my arm, looks at my tattoo, makes a face, and shoves my arm away.
Don’t fucking touch me. Especially if you’re just going to be rude.
I hate people.
I love my mother because before I went out of town once she said in her adorable ass accent “Please be careful when you go to New York, I love your father but he is not Liam Neeson.”
Never apologize for your fluency in english.
If you have a different mother tongue, you are under no obligation to know english at all, let alone fluent english.
Never let anyone make you feel bad for not speaking proper english.
Be proud of your mother tongue.
Why should we learn their language when they mock and refuse to learn our own.
Agree and disagree. My mom has a pretty obvious accent and it is infuriating to me when someone makes fun of her because of how she speaks. She has a very broad vocabulary and is easy to understand. Some Americans just hear an accent and immediately become close minded and think “nope, I can’t understand this person” and that’s where the ignorance lies.
But sometimes it is the foreigner’s fault. I know plenty of foreigners who have lived in America for 15 to 20 years and still barely speak English. Which is fine. What’s not fine is when they get mad at Americans and call them ignorant when they can’t understand them. Which in turn makes Americans dislike said foreigners and in turn, mock them. If you’re making the deliberate choice to change your life by moving to a country, no matter the country, at least make an effort to learn that country’s language.
Kinda getting tired of getting looked at like I have 8 arms when I get asked my bra size. My classmates literally lifted my shirt to check the tag on my bra because they didn’t believe me. They’re just boobs. Calm yoself.
It’s my birthday! List of things that will go on today with princess-valhalla :
- tattoos, maybe, hopefully
- bar at the beach
This should definitely be fun.
