Mistaken for a native speaker?

I live in a predominantly Spanish-speaking neighborhood but most of the store workers don't speak Spanish. I help out when I can. Yesterday I was helping a woman at the deli (and was surprised how easily I was able to translate '3 pounds of Argentinian shrimp'). After thanking me she asked me what country I was from. I told her I was from the U.S. (where this all took place.) She looked surprised. I don't know if she thought I was a native Spanish speaker but that's how I'm choosing to interpret it 😉
