Customer 1: Oh what a lovely accent, where is that from?
Me: New Zealand
Customer 1: Ohh OK... which part of Australia is that in?
Me: (in my head) *urrrrggghhh* (that's one of those gameshow incorrect answer buzzers)

Customer 2: Where in England are you from?
Me: Oh I'm from New Zealand actually
Customer 2: Oh! Well not far from England though
Me: (laughing cos' I think they're joking... then realising they're serious...) Ohh, New Zealand is off the east coast of Australia...
Customer 2: Ohhh...
*Insert awkwardness and embarrassment and customer slinks away*

Customer: Are you from Australia or New Zealand?
Me: New Zealand
Customer: (shaking my hand) Ahh gidday mate!
Me: Umm that's Australia
Customer: Oh... are you sure? Because I've been to New Zealand and I'm positive...

Welcome to my life - except its the Kiwis asking the dumb questions and they're saying "aboot" instead of "about" ;) Except the time the guy in Edmonton asked us if we'd driven over from New Zealand. To be honest I think he realised how stupid it was the second it left his mouth but still...

Jacqui - Driven over from New Zealand!? Oh my gosh I think that tops it for me for the dumbest things said!

Pixie - Yea had my fair share of that when living in Perth. It got really old, really fast, but they loved it.
