I can speak English with an American accent.


I took one of those "where did the night go" flights to London. I arrived at my hotel at 9:00AM GMT+0. I walked up to the desk.

"Can I help you sir?"

"Yes, my name is Jones, is it too early to check in?" I asked. He looked me, cocked his eyebrow and asked;

"Are you the tour guide?"

"Excuse me?" I would have looked really puzzled, if I hadn't been so tired.

"Are you here for the tour?" I knew I hadn't slept for a long time, but it was still only 1:00AM GMT+8 which I was use to. I couldn't be that out of it. Let's see, I asked if it was too early to check in. He said something about a tour. To earlyyy...Toooearrr... To early,- tour.....

I decided to try again. "Is it too early in the morning to go to my room?"

"Oh no sir, your room is ready now."


I forgot they don't speak American, only English, and oh yes, they are different.
