Muslim. Assumption I don’t speak English.

Because I also speak German and Arabic I am sometimes VERY tempted to have a bit of fun with the person or persons making the assumption. Usually I say nothing and simply walk out of earshot, but once in a while I find it necessary to say, in English, “I can understand what you are saying”. This has led to very red faces and very fast talking apologies.
