Over Dinner

Me: I like our new French room mate, Bobo. She's cute.

Bobo: Yeah, and her cute French boyfriend is cute too.

Me: Yeah, they don't know the words for things sometimes, and I don't help them out. Cause, y'know, it's America. Figure it out.

Bobo: Yeah.

Me: But I have this problem with them lately. Or actually, with anyone who has an accent. Whenever I'm talking to someone with an accent I subconsciously start speaking with that accent too which makes me sound really condescending and also makes it really offensive when I talk to people with lisps or deaf people.

Bobo: Oh my god. Oh my god.
