CAR TROU­BLE

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - All in a Day’s Work - SUB­MIT­TED BY JOSEPH FERRI

A late ar­rival at the Nashville air­port left me stand­ing in front of a car rental agent one night. In a heavy south­ern drawl, she asked, “Can ah help y’ all?”

Af­ter pro­cess­ing my order, she said, “I have an ac­cent. Is that OK?”

“I don’t mind at all,” I said. “Be­ing from New Eng­land, I have one, too.”

She waited a minute be­fore re­ply­ing, “I meant the car. I have a Hyundai Ac­cent.”
