Working in a retail store, where people from all around the country shop the goal is to make every customer aware of different programs within the store. One program I was advertising was our TJX rewards/ credit card, after signing up you receive 10 percent off your purchase. While translating the speech in spanish, a elderly caucasian lady yelled while " THIS IS AMERICA SPEAK English". This made me feel degraded because speaking my language in a country I was born and being judge upon it was outrageous. I was shocked for about five minutes because I have never experienced bias comment that was discriminative. This comment suggests that a group of people shouldn't be aware of the promotion that was being advertised.
Atencion compradores, no se olviden que puden ...
