(I’m a Canadian citizen, but I’ve lived in the US for 12 years.)

Student: “Canadians talk funny.”

Me: “I’m actually from Canada, you know.”

Student: “But, you don’t live in the woods!”

Me: *amused* “Well, not all Canadians live in the woods, you know. They live in cities as well, just like here.”

Student: “So, did you come here to have a better life?”

Me: “Hello, [elocution lessons]. How may I help you?”

Caller: “Hi. I need some electrocution lessons for my husband.”

Caller: “How much do you charge for electrocution?”

Me: “Prices are [price], ma’am. Forgive me for saying so, but it is pronounced elocution, not electrocution. They mean significantly different things.”

Caller: “I was calling for you to electrocute my husband! Not me!”

Me: “I apologise, I was not–”

Caller: “Stop correcting me and just electrocute my husband!”
