This happened to me so often when I first moved to Austria. People kept asking me for directions and I felt so bad disappointing them.
People in Madrid always asked me for directions. When i replied that im not spanish (in english mind you, cause if I replied in spanish like hell would they ever believe me) they're response would be that I look and sound spanish and should stop confusing people 'wear your flag or something'
Haha! So in the Spanish version of this comic, the guy just gets mad at you for misleading him.
Once in Berlin I was stopped for 2 spanish guys, asking me in a bad english if a train was stopping in Zoo Station. As spanish I am, I replied them back in spanish "Yes, this one is stopping there. Anyways, you can read it on the screen too". They thanked me the information, and I listened they said to each other "Wao, we have improved a lot our english! I was able to understand perfectly to that german girl!" My face was O_o
Wait...they heard you speaking Spanish to them, yet they thought you were a German speaking English?!
