CLT Immigration Officer to my husband (please read with a Jamaican accent as well for extra realism): Mr. Andrew…what do you do for a living?
Andy: Nothing. I was a student and I just graduated.
IO: And what did you do before that?
Andy: Well, I’ve been a student for a long time. Most of my life actually.
IO: Must be nice.
Officer turns to me and asks: And what do YOU do?
Luckily, I can tell him I have a job so he doesn’t think we’re completely destitute freeloaders who deserve to be thrown back into the wasteland between the airplane and the immigration desks. Then he asks where I’m from and I tell him Buffalo. He smiles and says he could tell – I don’t look like I’m from Charlotte.
