Why do Americans....

Refer to foreign English speaking people as having "An accent" without realising they have an accent themselves?

I know a lot of people who are not American, and are English speaking, who consider themselves to have no accent.

Im sure some americans refer to english as american like "were american - do you speak american?"

I worked at a department store when I was younger and a couple asked me "where are mens trousers? Were American !"

I should have said "we dont have trousers for americans we only have trousers for Australians !"

I was married to one for way too long, but to give her credit she couldn't stand most Americans.

Wow, lots of anti-american sentiment on here.

I wonder how many Brits automatically jump on that bandwagon without actually meeting any?

I've been fortunate enough to spend a decent bit of time in the States, and generally speaking they're among the kindest, warmest hosts you could wish for

Of course you're generalising as much as anyone - but I prefer your way of doing it, to be honest.

I think I don't have much of an accent, but of course when I say that I refer to the fact I don't have any regional UK accent, as of course I have an English accent, if I went to Texas and asked for 'A packet of pork scratchings bar keep!' he'd look at me as though I were mad perhaps,

I went to America once, Florida, lovely people, extremely polite and nice, overly polite??? No such thing in my book,

I'd live there if I could, if I win the lottery tonight, and I mean win it big, I'd move out there straight away with the missus, in a nice suburban house and get a Mustang. Job done,
