First off, I beg of you, please don't make this political in any way, shape or form. Thanks. But, I absolutely could use some input. HELP! I have health problems. Lupus, Sjogrens Syndrome...autoimmune type stuff. I'm on a lot of medications and can't work right now. I was always very good in Spanish class in HS and college, but this was years ago. So, I decided to take some Spanish classes. It's been hard, but I enjoy them none the less. Even though I've missed lots of classes, I finished Spanish four in the Spring. I had to get a tutor for the classes I missed while sick. Now, I'll need to take Conversational Spanish in the Fall. Everyone says to practice. Where I live, 80% of the population speaks Spanish. Others in class, typically practice in the community. I get my nails done at this place, where they all speak Spanish. Almost all of the techs don't mind if I ask some questions.One woman (who does eyebrows and facials, no naisl) insists upon it and almost turns into a teacher....she loves it. Two of them are middle of the road....seem to enjoy it when they can help out a little. One woman (L) doesn't like it. She actually doesn't speak English very well, like the others. Years ago, an American woman quit, because she found out that L was saying nasty things about her behind her back in Spanish. The owner is not always there. She waits for her to leave and then says unkind things. The others are nice. In May, I got my nails done around Mother's Day. As I was leaving, they all said goodbye, some in English and some in Spanish. I loved it...one lady gave me a quick lesson on how to say "have a good weekend," then L came running up to me and very sarcastically said "Feliz Navidid" just as I was leaving the shop. One tech heard it and put her head down. This left me cold. Yesterday, I had a pedicure. I had my Spanish flash cards with me. The lady that loves to help me came up to me and we chatted a little in Spanish....she loves it. My tech, was quiet, but did help me with the pronunciation of a word on a card. We spoke very little...in either language. She is lovely, but tends to be quiet. As I was finishing up, L, started talking almost to no one. I think she was attempting to speak to my tech. She (L) speaks very rapidly, so I don't fully understand her. She said in Spanish sarcastically something like "she comes in her and expects to be a student .....and we are suppose to ....." Then, my tech, blushed and whispered "Did you understand that?" And I said, "a little" then my tech fell all over herself helping me. She seemed embarrassed by her co-worker, L. The owner had just left. The owner will be back today at 11. My husband feels strongly that I should call her and tell her what happened. She doesn't speak Spanish. She is a very happy go lucky, nice person. She was in AA many years ago and is somewhat non confrontational. She does not like stressful situations, so I don't think she would do a thing .She might even think I'm weird. Should I tell the owner? Just avoid that tech? If I avoid that tech it will become obvious and I suspect the sarcastic comments will increase. Another thought I had was to tell the owner nicely, but act like it's not a big deal. Then every time I see L say "Merry Christmas!" Ideas?
