I worked in customer service over the phone and had a lady ask what country I was in. I told her I was from Washington state and she didn't believe me. It happens. And I don't even have a speech impediment

I'm an Aussie who apparently has a Canadian accent. I was just taught how to speak proper English when I was growing up. I don't get upset when people ask me, I just laugh it off. Don't worry OP, honest mistake.

I bet those hosers don't even know what they are talkin aboot, eh?

It's okay OP. I stutter and people ask me where I'm from all the time. Some people don't believe me, but it's okay. I don't take it personally and she probably didn't as well. Don't beat yourself up.

Don't beat yourself up! While embarrassing for you, they probably don't think it's that bad to have someone mistake their speech impediment for an accent at least.
