... You're dumb
I'm from New Zealand. 1/3 of out population in Auckland City are Chinese. I've been around them all my life. There's never an accent in Chinese too hard to understand. One just has to listen intently and ask the speaker to slow down. It's the fault with many foreign people; once they think they know the words, they try to speak faster! But if they slow down, they're much easier to comprehend - even with grammatical and pronunciation mistakes.
Apparently you can't understand English either. Did you have to use a translator for this FML?
Don't worry, the same thing happened to me in Heathrow. Accents are the bane of travelers.
The same thing happened to me in Peru! There were these two gorgeous Peruvian men who approached me as I was hiking up a mountain and began speaking to me. I said, "I'm sorry. I don't speak English. One of them replied, "I know. We're speaking English." All I could do was say, "Uh.... Bye!" and run away in embarrassment.
