Pawnee City Hall’s April Ludgate is our numero uno. From acerbic in-your-FACE one-liners to a stand-up-and-cheer rush of Latino pride, she totally gets us.
When people tell you you don’t look Mexican – or Latina for that matter.
Not every Latina and Latino looks the same. There are 21 Spanish-speaking countries, so just chill with the generalizations, thanks.
When people ask why you drink so much.
“What does your new boyfriend have that I don’t?” – Your no-good ex.
“I mean, just look at him.”
She totally gets what it’s like rolling in to work on a Monday.
You want to just say f this sh*t.
She knows the grown-up struggle all too well. 😩
You need to keep your lame ass 9–5 because you have bills, student loans, car insurance, Netflix, Hulu, eHarmony, Internet…
Just like you, she demands respect from non-Latino friends when using the native tongue.
I am a queen and deserve to be treated like one.
She knows this is you low-key plan your enemy’s demise.
Because maybe Yolanda has it coming for being such a rat.
When you discuss your future plans with your parents and they try to give you advice.
You’ve had just about enough of the same BS.
When you get asked about your after work or school plans.
“If there isn’t a cat, blankets, and Netflix involved, I’m out.”
Literally, every time you talk sh*t with your friends, but don’t want people to know.
Until that one person turns around and responds in Spanish. 😳
And this is you every time you visit your family and the questions come pouring down on you.
