Being fluent in English and Spanish is never a bad thing, but in certain cases speaking Spanish is beyond a blessing, especially…
When a creeper throws cheesy pickup lines at you.

It’s the perfect time to pull the old “no hablo inglés” card.
When someone talks smack about you in Spanish because you don’t look Latina…
Their face is priceless when you bust out with a response en español and they’re like OMAIGA!
When you are hungry AF and need to order at a taqueria.
No language barrier here, just hook me up con tres tacos y pronto, please.
When something is only funny because you know Spanish.
When you take Spanish in school for the easy A.
And also become the most popular person in the class.
When the man of your dreams only speaks Spanish.
Not only are you happy to chase after him, you are thrilled there’s no language barrier.
When you understand slang that makes no sense to gringos.

“Qué pedo” makes perfect sense in Spanish, but in English… don’t even bother trying to translate it.
When you’re at a Latino grocery store and EVERYTHING makes perfect sense.
Other people be scratchin’ their heads and you’re like, “OMG, outta my way… I love cheesecake!”
When you can watch a show without reading the subtitles.
It makes it so much easier to binge-watch the show, qué no?
When you can order an horchata…

…without sounding like you are calling someone a flat-nosed whore.
When you want to be a little more dramatic.
Face it, Spanish lets you be WAY more emotive than English.
