A man was recently reminded how some people are too full of themselves to see reality. When a stranger in a bar incorrectly assumed he was flirting with her and talked down to him as a result, he had to give her a reality check. Here’s what he had to say.
He was abroad in Ecuador
It all started when the man was abroad in Ecuador, Quito to be exact. He was staying in a hostel there at the time. He was planning on staying there for about three weeks, and just down the road was the perfect place to get a bite to eat.
He had a favorite pub
Less than a block away from his hostel was an Irish pub. “This pub had really good bar food that wasn’t on the menu of a lot of other restaurants in the area,” the man said, “so because of that, it was a mixed crowd. Popular with locals and backpackers because of the proximity to the hostel.”
He needed an extra chair
The man was at the pub one day with some friends he’d made at the hostel. There were some other hostel guests who planned to join them there. As such, they would need more seating, so the man left to fetch a spare stool.
He asked a woman
“Next to me is a barstool, and on the other side of the barstool are two women talking,” the man explained. “They’re obviously friends.” He decided to approach one of the women to ask for the spare bar stool. He didn’t anticipate her reaction.
She didn’t understand him
He asked the woman, in Spanish, if he could use the chair. She also replied to him in Spanish. However, the woman said she didn’t understand him and didn’t speak English. She seemed to find their interaction funny.
She kept acting strangely
The man was not a native Spanish speaker, but he’d known it since childhood and was plenty fluent in it. He asked her again in Spanish, and again, she claimed not to speak English and not to understand him. He ended up finding a different chair in the end.
She thought he was flirting
Back at his table, the man overheard the woman talking to her friend. She was giggling and apparently saying something about the interaction they’d just had. “I hear them chuckling to themselves, assuming I was hitting on her,” he said. “And she rejected me?”
She approached him
Annoyed with their earlier interaction, the man went about his evening with his friends. He was presented with the opportunity for revenge later that same night. The woman approached his table because she needed something from him.
He got his revenge
“The napkin dispenser is directly in front of me, and she asks me in Spanish if I can hand it to her,” he said. This was his chance. In perfect Spanish, he said he didn’t understand her because he didn’t speak English. She repeated her request in Spanish, and he repeated his mockery of her line. The woman sulked away, flustered and frustrated.
People on the Internet responded
Commenters were entertained by the man’s quick-thinking revenge, and also rolled their collective eyes at the strange woman’s reaction. “They deserve every second of that,” said one commenter. Another reply read, “It’s so funny to me because I’m notorious for not knowing when I’m being hit on. Some people are so vain.”
