Usually when people hear my husband speak they will ask if he is from England, but a few times people have asked if he is from Australia (or once, New Zealand). But the funniest was last week when we were grocery shopping. After he paid the clerk handed him the receipt and asked, "So are you from New Jersey?" She did not appear to be joking. The two of us just looked at each other and he said with a smile, "No, London actually."

I got Australia once whilst over there. My favourite story though was coming up to a toll booth in southern New Jersey with our rental car adorned with the English flag (it was chav up your car week). The booth operator asked if we were from Sweden, Denmark and Norway, before arguing that "That's not the flag of England".
