    Me: “Hi, can I help you?”

    Customer: “You’ve got an accent.”

    Me: “Yeah, I’ve heard that. I’m not from here.”

    Customer: “You’re American?”

    Me: “Yeah, I’m from upstate New York.”

    Customer: “But American, right? You’ve got a visa? You need one to work here?”

    Me: “No, I don’t have a visa–”

    Customer: “Holy s***! You’re illegal? They know you’re illegal here?”

    Me: “I’m not illegal. I’m from upstate New York, near Canada.”

    Customer: “Oh, if you’re from Canada, you’re not really illegal then. Canada’s like America, just different. Welcome to our country. I’m looking for a book. You probably only read books in Canadian, but I can help you with the language and you can find me a book here.”
