I just love an English accent...
Most of the time.
Me: Hello, Scenic Route. How can I help you?
Her: Ellllooo... And I sooo love the American accents! How you don’t say the T in WaTer. You say waadder. …
And... is your company pronounced Scenic Rowt or Scenic Root? The way you just pronounced it..are you , by chance from Texas??
Me: Uh, no. I guess you could say either “Scenic Root” Like Route 66 or “Scenic Rowt” like Route. I say Scenic Route….
Her: you Americans are funny….
Me: (thinking - not saying...) ha ha ha - do you have a point with this?
We spoke for a while longer and the more she talked the more I pictured a rather snooty, nose in the air kind of person whose mouth is in a perpetual downward turn. Eyes half closed..,,you know what I’m talking about …
Anyway, at the end of the call…
Her: Well, I’m Sarah……(pause) ......with an “H”…..
Me: Funny, in America…we spell Sarah with an “S” …..
I TOTALLY crack me up….!!
Ahhhh.. I love my job.... Is it Friday yet??????????????
