Okay this question comes from a recent interaction at Target. While walking around in my red shirt (lol) he mistook me for a Target employee. He taps me and begins his conversation in spanish. As he is talking. I am shaking my head no and waving hands no in front of him. Once he stops I try my best to mime that I am not an employee. I gesture for him to follow me. I lead him to the customer service desk to get him some help. So once we're there I try to tell him to stay here and they will help him soon (there was a loooooong line). Anyway as I walk away, he pulls my shirt and starts in on it again. I do it again, NO. He decides that I must be hard of hearing so he speaks LOUDER! Each time I mimed no, he re-started the convo, but LOUDER!
Has this ever happened to you? Why do some people who speak another language think it will help others understand by repeating themselves, but louder?
Am I the only one who finds it funny?
