I've had a conversation recently that went something along these lines. It was equally hilarious and annoying.
Person: "Where are you from?"
Person: "You don't look Canadian. Say 'about'. " (Pronounced as "aboot")
Person: "You don't sound Canadian either."
Me: "Yeah, well, it isn't always like you see on TV. Plus I grew up in the Caribbean."
Person: " Oh, you don't look Caribbean either."
Me: "No one looks Caribbean. Mixed up place, the West Indies."
Person; " I guess you could be Brazilian. That's close to Caribbean, right?"
Me: " Kinda? Not really. I'm of Indian descent."
Person: "So why are you in the Caribbean?"
Me: " Colonialism. Everyone's everywhere."
Person: "You've reached England from the colonies."
Me:" I guess that could said."
