Foreign Accent

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, Dec 22, 2013 at 10:08 AM

A friend told me she spent a day in Portland putting on a fake English accent and was treated so much better by average, everyday people that I had to try it. I did my best South African accent. It must have been pretty good because my experience was almost unbelievable. I started out walking to different shops on NW 23rd and was instantly welcomed by shop owners, cashiers, waiters and whoever else works in the service industry. A bartender actually bought me a round and said "welcome to the states." Later, I ordered a beer at a horrible bar called Scooter's. This really beautiful, young blond girl just slid right up to me and gave me her number. She actually said, "you had me at your accent." I couldn't fucking believe it. It was so ridiculous! It's just pathetic how shallow people can be. I recommend to anyone to give it a try. It's just weird.
