"You have an accent..."

Satruday morning, I went into a patient's room to do my assessment and the first thing my patient said was, "You're from Bosnia." Now if you know me pretty well, if I didn't sleep well the night before, it takes me a long time to wake up. Unfortunately, I was still trying to wake up so I was short and to the point with her. This is how the conversation went:

"Well, you're not from here. Where are you from?"
"The United States"
"Well, you have an accent."
"I sound different because I wear hearing aids."

Thanks, I think. Too bad my "accent" wasn't cool enough to be from England or Australia! That would've made my day...haha
