It's not easy being a Scotsman in England. Some of the locals have difficulty understanding my accent. I'm living in Oxford now, but it was the same in London. Recently, I had trouble ordering a coffee...
Me: Hi. I would like a tall white Americano to take away please.
Coffee guy: (shouts) Tall black Americano to go.
Me: Sorry, white.
Coffee guy: (shouts) Two Americanos to go.
Me: No, no. A white Americano.
Coffee guy: Both white, or just one?
