The inconvenient things that happen because people just don’t get your accent.
Has anyone ever traveled to Miami, Florida? Well maybe the real question ought to be have the people of Miami, Florida ever traveled? Why? – Because this weekend past, the security junket went into overload as mild mannered, white as a ghost and heavily English accented O’Grady was mistaken for a Cuban tourist.
Taking aside because of his ‘funny’ accent O’Grady was made to deal with the nightmare of having to deal with an overzealous bureaucracy keen to stamp out Communism in America and funny looking men with funny looking clothes and funny suntans and accents.
In the end he was accused for 2 hours for being an illegal immigrant from Cuba (obviously a revolutionary …like Fidel Castro ) before the squat team realized they had made a big boo boo.
Oh well, the fun adventures you are likely to have once in a while, especially at Miami International Airport.
