35. My ethnic background did not help me at all when I visited Europe ESPECIALLY

when I ran into people who shared my Scottish ancestry.

I could not understand what the fuck they were saying even when I'd put my eyeballs three inches from their lips.

The worst thing was I couldn't say, "Do you know English?" because that's what they were speaking.

The only way your ethnic background could help is if you were from that country and were old enough to remember the culture and so forth.

Or if it's an oppressed country and you're the leader of a more powerful one.
