So you are a miserable POM
No. I don't get annoyed. I simply tell them the truth. I'm American... I am from the U.S. It really makes no difference where your ancestors were born.
i only get annoyed when the government thinks i can't do something as well as someone else because of my heritage. i like accomplishing things because i am who i am, not because of where my great great grandfather is from or who my grandmother might have slept with.
I just don't understand why that question would make someone angry and rude. Just don't get it
No. People are curious and want to know what blend someone is. So they should ask whats your heritage, But they don't think too much and they ask where are you from?
Haha, who'da thunk.
Yeah I do get annoyed because people don't ask anymore they tell me. And then proceed to tell me that they're paying my wages, their tax dollars are gng towards my fortnightly payments. I'm not on the dole. But typical Aussies.
So all Australians do this to you?
I never said that lol.
But pretty much.
Well i am an Australian and i have never done anything like that.
Just the ones I've encountd.
Pleased to meet you :)
I'm half Aussie half Malaysian and get asked that pretty much every week. But I find it kind of funny to mess with ppl and say I'm Aussie and look all confused, and then they usually get all awkward lol.
I wouldn't care about such questions, people are just interested, I'm sure it's not about insulting you.
Maybe they are interested in starting a conservation with you.
what is mixed heritage?
first time i was in the UK they thought i was jewish :(
no the world is very big now . u can be vietnamese and be from australia .
