I didn’t bring up the accent. I’m used to accents. I’ve been in three relationships and none of my partners spoke English as the first language. I speak Vietnamese all day, an utterly unearthly-sounding tonal language. Want to talk about my intolerance of accents? You’re daft, man.

ALL the others, from the same language group and others, managed to make themselves comprehensible, accents and all. I think the compulsive screen-share annoyed me more than his icepick of a voice.

I am tired of this tangent.
