The Ire Of The Irish

| Maryland, USA | Right | March 2, 2012

(I’m Irish and am working in the States one summer, waiting tables at an Irish pub/restaurant. I’m serving a couple in their 30s.)

Customer: “Where are you from?”

Me: “I’m from Ireland.”

Customer: “Where’s that?”

Me: “It’s in Europe.”

Customer: “Oh, you’re from another country! Your English is really good!”

    …I don’t see the problem here. OP says they’re from Ireland, (presumably) making Irish (Gaelic?) their first language. The only NAR that I can see is that the customer doesn’t know where Ireland is; if the OP meant for that to be the NAR, however, the story should have ended with “Where’s that?”
