Jeeze wiz! It’s my accent..

Tonight I went to McDonalds to grab dinner. I only go there once a year on valentines day. 🙂 Just Kidding. I ordered what should be pretty easy for anyone to understand, but apparently not the young guy at the register. Especially with all the new slang nowadays my accent should blend right in. haha

The ordering went like this:

Me: I want a McChicken with cheese

MC Guy: Swizz cheese??

Me: No, with cheese

Mc Guy: wiz cheese?? (he looks at me wide eyed and confused).

Me: (instantly Wiz Khalifa the rapper went to my mind. Lol, I don’t know why).  Let me rephrase my order. PUT CHEESE ON MY McCHICKEN sandwhich. I didn’t yell, I just spoke clearly.

Mc Guy: smiles and goes around the corner. Then comes back with a bag and says I put two McChickens WIZ cheese.

Apparently I say WIZ for WITH. 🙁

    1. I have a feeling your English is far more understandable than most Americans! I love your story. You are an amazing young woman with a wonderful sense of humor!! God bless you sweetheart!

  1. Hello! Amish language seems to be an old version of German – much like swedish. When my children talked swedish at an amish bakery stand they laughed and seemed to understand

  2. TRY TALKIN WITH A SOUTHERN ACCENT ALONG WITH THE AMISH ACCENT THAT CAN BE VERY CONFUSEING I USED TO TELL MY SISTER KATIE TO EITHER SPEAK DUTCH OR ENGLISH SO I CAN UNDERSTAND HER

  3. Lol! Some people’s ears just aren’t very good at understanding any accent except their own, I think. The neighborhood where I live in Los Angeles is unusually diverse, with immigrants from many many parts of the word: Central and South America, Thailand, Armenia, Ethiopia, Viet Nam, Russia, and other places. My boyfriend (who has a strong Maine accent himself) can’t understand what *anyone* is saying, even when it’s completely clear to me! He always feels really bad about it, afraid he is hurting people’s feelings when he asks them to repeat themselves.
