We’ve All Got That Mexican Friend Who Tries Too Hard
“Good thing I’m Mexican, though, dog… otherwise I wouldn’t be able to handle this s**t.”
If you’re Mexican, you probably have a friend (or cousin) who isn’t quite in touch with his/her Mexican roots. And it’s completely OK! There’s no right or wrong way to be “Mexican” — how much people identify with their roots totally depends on their individual experiences and circumstances. But sometimes, one of those friends wants to prove how “Mexican” they really are and they end up coming off like a total try-hard. You know it, they kinda know it — and all it does is make things awkward.
