Accents in the US are always interesting. When I am speaking with a  customer on the phone, I do listen to their accent. Be it a faint Chinese Accent (I can usually tell somebody born in Taiwan, Shanghai, and Northern China) or what are of the US they are from. It gets fun when they are mixing a Chinese and English accent. I taught ESL for a while, so I am very aware of accents.
