Canadian, eh?

Yesterday, while at an open house for my company, I spoke briefly with a young woman about a position. Shortly after our initial conversation, she asked me if I was Canadian. Stunned, I said I was, and asked her how she knew. Had someone mentioned it to her? Everyone here assumes that I am American.

She said no, she just knew because my accent was distinctly Canadian. Turns out she has a good friend from Cambridge, Ontario.

That comment alone may have made it worthwhile to spend my Saturday at the office.
