July's Theme Of The Month: Great Timing!

| NC, USA | Extra Stupid, Geography, Students

(I’m English. I’ve lived in the US for several years, but I still have a very strong English accent. A pair of customers I’ve never met approach me out of nowhere.)

Customer #1: “It’s so good to see you here! Your coworker tells me you’re a fellow Kentucky alum!”

Customer #2: “Gosh, how have you been? When did you graduate? What brings you to North Carolina?”

Me: *laughing* “Oh, I see what happened. No, I’m from the other ‘UK.'”

(Both customers look blank.)

Customer #1: “What other UK?”
