Ugh, my Mum does this to an extent. She thinks incorporating a stereotypical (I mean like, Super Mario kind of stereotypical) Italian accent into her English will make the natives understand her.


Goddamit Mum.

Sorry, I cant hear you Europeans over our 104 medals.
And our freedom.
And the fact without us WW2 would've been lost.
And over our internationally popular music.
And our rover on mars.
And our flag on the moon.
And our non-hairy women...

**** , my mom is always ******* like that when we're on a vacation. Except she'll speak louder even if the person speaks English, albeit with an accent.
I swear to god, all of our conversations go like this.
"Excuse me, where can I find St. Peter's Church?"
"Excusame, madame, could you a please repeata?"

Thanks mom, for perpetuating the stereotype about stupid American tourists.
