Those of you who have met me IRL know that I look “ethnic” in the sort of way where I have been asked if I’m from everywhere from Latin America to Southern Europe to pretty much the entire continent of Asia from Palestine to Japan. Also Finland, for Reasons.

That’s the only reason I can come up with for why I had some random white dude yell out to me in the parking lot of the supermarket, “Happy Cinco de Mayo!”

Uh…thanks?

I mean, I think the Battle of Puebla was kind of awesome and all, but I am a) not Mexican, and b) even if I was, it's not really a major holiday in Mexico to the degree some gringos seem to think it is.

Maybe there was some reasoning behind that guy's thought process besides "She is Mexican and therefore is celebrating Mexican Independence Day," but I doubt it.
