Where were you born and what is your ethic/cultural background?

It is a little complicated for me since I am adopted. My biological father is a Newfie and my mom is Canadian of English descent. In terms of my adoptive family, my dad's side is from Scotland and my mom's side is also Newfie.

I was born and raised in Toronto, so I don't have any kind of Newfie accent.
It's a trap!

Now that you are in Fort Worth, do people find your Scottish accent to be odd at all?

Sounds like most people's reaction to hearing a Newfie. :D I went to a youth group retreat in my teenage years and there was one of them in my cabin. They were arguing that a Turr was a bird in a very heavy accent.

Sometimes my wife has a hard time understanding my accent lol. Since I've been here I have really had to slow down and pronounce my words properly for people to understand me.

I was born in Ireland, been living in Canada since I was 12. Still hanging on to a bit of my accent. People actually think I'm a Newfie when they hear me talk. lol

One guy actually asked me if I had to learn how to speak English, as according to him people in the UK spoke Portuguese... true story.

Some Americans also think that Canadians live in igloos and use sled dogs to get around. ;) Well, they do way up north, but hardly anyone lives there other then the Inuit people.

Absoulty correct. But I'm kinda getting sick of being asked crazy questions, here's some of them that I've been asked.

Do you celebrate Xmas in the UK, you know Santa in a red suit and stuff?
Do you celebrate 4th of July in Scotland?
Do you celebrate Halloween?
Do you celebrate Easter?
Do you celebrate Thanksgiving?
Do you wear Kilts everyday in Scotland and carry swords?
Do you have McDonalds in the UK?
Do you have cable TV in the UK?
Do you have cell phones?
Do they have paved roads in Scotland?
Why can't your parents take a train over here if they are to scared to fly?
I thought people in the UK spoke Portuguese?


All true questions I've been asked.

So? They aren't asking it to you annoy you, they really don't know. It's not malevolent ignorance, it's just...ignorance. Doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad thing. You want to know how something works, you ask somebody right? Same principle.

We're all human, let's be nice to one another. :pimp:

It's a bad thing when a woman working in the bank says she has never heard of the United Kingdom or Great Britian and had no idea they were a Country. And then says really? I'm sorry but I've never heard of Scotland, England Ireland or Wales at all, and have no idea what the United Kingdom or Great Britian is.

It's the year 2011, and that is shocking for anyone living in a first world Country not to know such a thing.

Yikes, the UK is an essential part of the creation of America. I guess they failed history class.

Kassem G has a YouTube series called "California On ___" and it is rather hilarious.
