If you speak before you think, you may get yourself in trouble or even hurt those around you. Always choose your words wisely because they might be forgiven but never forgotten. A woman was told to get back to her country because she didn’t speak English; her reply is priceless and she teaches us a valuable history lesson.

This happened while I was waiting in line at a store and a woman was speaking on her cellphone in another language. After she hanged up, a man standing next to her spoke up.

Man: “I didn’t want to say anything while you were on the phone, but you’re in America now. You need to speak English.”

Woman: “Excuse me?”

Man: *very slow* “If you want to speak Mexican, go back to Mexico. In America, we speak English.”

Woman: “Sir, I was speaking Navajo. If you want to speak English, go back to England.”

If you liked her answer, please share it with friends.
