Comments: ...it's how you say it.

If I start to stutter with my customer, I have no excuse. I can't say I do something on the side that requires me to stutter!

BTW, I cannot believe I swore you posted this already. I was all over your sitemeter yesterday, both blogs, looking for this damn story. ;-) You should have seen what I was googling, trying to get it top pop up.

BTW, your Search on your blog doesn't work.

Heh. I am so bad at this too. My Southern is slowly fading, but I can still pull it out.

I went to NY for 2 weeks when I was sixteen, and I had my parents pulling their hair out when I got home, taw-king about caw-fee and how much fun I had on long gisland....

I will definitely pick up an accident (particularly Southern) if around it long enough. Most of the time I don't realize it until someone points it out.

I have the same facility with all sorts of accents, but I love using the pseudo French accent ad naseum with snooty french people.

I guess that's why I love pepe le piu so much, he cracks me up with his accent!

Bou - you can always tell him you're in a Mel Tillis tribute band :-)
