“ Are You Canadian Or American? “

No. I am Australian.

” But you’ve got an accent… “

Yes. So do you.

“I mean, did you come from Canada or America? “

Yes.

” Well, which one. “

Both.

” But Canadians hate Americans. “

No, they don’t. But they do hate people who fish for affection by trying to tell them so. It’s like trying to determine whether someone is from Australia or New Zealand in order to abuse the other country. If you want to score kewl points by being contemptuous, do it using your own prejudices…don’t try to borrow someone else’s.
