So the nice lady bartender has a familiar accent. I look at her and ask, “Australian?”braveheart

“No,” she said. “New Zealand.”

Silence…

So I share the story where I once asked an accented bloke if he was English, after which he spent a great deal of fury defining how offended he was of my assumption. “Ever see Braveheart?” he asked.

Back to the bartender–“Is it like that?” I asked.

Yes….just like that,” she half whispered.

Oops!
