    I'm Southern. I have a very thick accent at

    times. When non-southerners hear this, they automatically assume I'm a backwoods, idgit. They actually speak slower like I may not understand them. It's obnoxious. Usually I wait for their insulting speech to end and then I come back at them like an auctioneer. I finish with...

    My doctor is great at this. She talks to me like I have never heard of a human body and I don't know my elbow from my *******. It drives me ******* crazy, and I have considered switching doctors because of it.
