I'm sure Maple, Muskwa and myself are the only people on this board who speak normally .. without an irritating accent !

pfffffffffffff do you remember CANADIANmaple. He's a CANADIAN!!! Eh!
I really need to do research before I speak. You ALL speak like that!!!! I thought I was bad. My mom is from Chicago, and I say, "So-da" and "A-b-out". Well, it's hard to type out and I don't know phonetics, but yeah... whatever. My dad's from New York, so that doesn't help either. Not that he sounds like a typical New Yorker, but he has his quirks.

Yeah, sometimes my national pride gets in the way... I think it was heightened this summer when I was working as a border officer, dealing with so many Americans who have no idea about what Canada or Canadians are like (of course, these people are only the minority, most Americans have a very good idea of what their Northern neighbours are like!). I was never rude to anyone, and I'm really not an angry person, but a lot of what I think comes out online in less than eloquent fashion.
