I've experienced the same thing. It might be annoying at first OP but try to use it to your advantage to get to know people. You'll be thankful for your uniqueness down the road I promise!

British people sound smart to most Americans - so as bad as that is just roll with it as you can't help it anyways. Find friends who value you for who you are!

One of my close friends is from England and we constantly tease each other about our accents. It's kinda what made us friends in the first place. We Americans can definitely be obnoxious when it comes to accents, but once people get used to it it'll definitely get better, OP.

i guess better then not talking to you at all. but still fyl. im sorry OP keep your head up itll get better and youll make friends who like you for you. i knownhow you feel about bejng a new kid

People with British accents grew up speaking that way, to say 'if I had a British accent I'd never shut up' is both ignorant and rude. Perhaps you have a Mexican accent, or no accent at all. Whatever the case your comment is atrocious.

My husband found the term coined on Tumblr. Yes, #43, you are correct. My husband relates a bit to the term as a Londoner living in Canada. It defines a person who is: -obsessed with Britain as a whole -possibly Dr. Who obsessed -says 'if I had a British accent, I'd never stop talking' -drinks tea not because they like it, but because of the British stereotype (my husband didn't even start drinking tea so much because the only teas he ever found in shops were black teas and Earl Gray, which he says tastes like soap. He found flavoured teas here in Canada and has since become an avid tea drinker. Ironic, no?)

Take it as an excuse to constantly say extra-British things that they'll never understand. And if you find someone who does understand you, bam, new friend made.

Pretend that you have no idea what people are talking about if they mention the accent. Act as though they are the ones that are talking funny. Tell people you love their accents. If the irony goes over their head, they weren't worth talking to. If it gives them a laugh, they might be worth your time.
