A few years ago in New York I went to a fast food restaurant and said: “I will have tea and a hamburger, please. Thank you.” The guy looked at me and asked: “Are you from England?” I said: “No, you’re mistaken.” He said: “Australian?” I said: “No.” Here I straightened my posture a bit, raised my head a little… The guy asked: “Where you came from?” I said: “I’m from Russia.” He replied: “Hmm, that’s strange, you have this British thing… Can I tell you something?” I said “Of course.” “Keep it simple… or you’ll look like an idiot.” (Laughs). Yeah, I was with a friend, and I was like: “Let’s get out of here.” (Laughs).
