Today, for the second time this week, I was asked to stop putting on such an obviously fake "British" accent. I am British and have lived here all my life. FML

Tsk tsk, some people, just tell them straight that you are indeed British and such. Not your fault that you talk the way you do, some people like to notice the smallest things. I hope you are not self conscious about the way you talk.. Good thing it was not worse though, they could have commented the way you walk or something Or the way you breathe

What a wanker.

I wish someone would ask that question to Madonna.

RIP Dunkey.

I have lived in the US my whole life (particularly, a small city which shall remain unnamed) and even people in my hometown ask me where I'm originally from. I guess I'm just awesome that way.

What I don't get is why people think others would fake an accent to begin with.

21- It's because a Russian accent will get more YouTube views on gun videos than an American one. Also because my girlfriend thinks its sexy when I do an impression of an Irish accent.

21- because accents are sexy!

It might be just me, but I don't think they sell bottles of tea in soda machines.

us 'brits' dont call people asscandles :/

Nestea? No never heard of it?

Im a dude with a really high pitched aisan wonan's voice

Yes 56, because we only go around calling people wankers, and drink tea at every single possible moment.

oh then you don't know my FIL 127! that man has to "murder" a cup of tea every half an hour I swear. and he says wanker describing most people. lol but really English people don't drink iced tea and that is what comes out of vending machines in the US, not hot tea

What a wanker.

"That lobcock shouldn't be there!" "Well it IS there, Mister Faulkner."

57 - i dr4nk eh the9m f5ur u. Translation: What the fuck, man?

Maybe, if you speak in an American accent, people will think it's also "obviously fake", and you can go back to your British accent.

That's actually a really good idea. Haha.

What the bloody hell did you tell him then? Hope it was brilliant!

No, it's Australian!

Hahaha, just start using a bad accent from another country. :]

Borat's accent from Kazakstan would work.

Just ignore it. Unfortunately, a lot of people in this world are idiots.

its cause everyone's used to those shitty fake ones you hear so often

Then tell them that you actually are British and need to stop being so rude. Problem solved. :)

You're rather optimistic, aren't you.
