I Put On a Foreign Accent In Public For No Reason At All

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 80 People


    My sister and I do this a lot if we go out somewhere together. We look very very similar so it's obvious we're closely related. I'm pretty good at accents (though apparently less good at modesty :P ), so it's fun to do something that doesn't relate to my sister's at all like a...

    It's Really Odd!

    I like to do accents as i've not got a strong british accent, it's interesting to see how people react to someone who appears to be from a different country.

    It's Really Fun

    My friends and I do this ALL the time just for the fun of it. I can put on a very convincing Italian and Spanish accent. My friends put on French, British, Irish, German and Russian accents in public. Also, sometimes my older brother, Caleb and I yell at each other in Italian...

    Don't Worry, I Do Too.

    When my sister and I stay at hotels, especially if they are close to home, we always put on a fake accent in the hallways.  Usually I'm british lol!
