    Lol, the accent thing is hilarious! Maybe somewhere way, way back you have a Jamaican relative and I have an Arab relative, lol.

    Isn't it weird? I never know what to say. It's always awkward. There is nothing wrong with being Arab, I'm just not Arab.

    Quoting OttawaHoney:

    That I am Arab. Even Arabs mistake me for being Arab. Everywhere I go this happens. One lady finally explained it to me, it's not just my hijab (head scarf) but my coloring and facial features. I randomly have people speak to me in Arabic. Once in France I even had an older Iraqi Kurd speak Kurdish to me. When I didn't respond he asked if I was Arab. He thought for sure I had to be Iraqi. I am mistaken for Iraqi and Jordanian most often.


    Everyone mistake my ethnic to...



    For me its very weird because I traveled,but never lived anywhere other than Florida,and people always think im from NewYork,saying I sound like a Newyorker,whatever that mean,lol,or from Bahamas or Jamaica,saying I have those features and that I have an accent,*shrugs*,lol

    That I don't believe in God because I am extremely politically left, have a dyed black mohawk, wear "goth" clothes and makeup, enjoy alternative music, and have piercings. I've actually been married for 13 years, have a child and am extremely active in my extremely conservative church.

    That I am ALWAYS happy. I'm not. I have my bad days. I just don't broadcast it to everybody.

    I don't think I get wrong assumptions, but I think some people are surprised by how good I am at starting and carrying a conversation. I'm comfortable with every type of person. I don't have a problem being in small groups of strangers. I look people in the eye when I talk to them. I smile. I ask open ended questions, and I'm pretty good with the one liners. I usually can get a giggle during most conversations.
    DH and I visited some friends of his recently that I had never met. Of course the guys all took off to shoot pool in another part of the house. So I was alone with 3 women I had never met before. They were surprised that I didn't follow DH to the pool table, and that we were all so comfortable together. They were wonderful, friendly people but I get that comment alot. I'm just awesome like that!! Lol!!

    The only thing I can think of is that people assume I am a Christian, I guess because the majority in the US are so a lot of people just assume everybody around them is one too.
