Blogathon Post 13: Clients say the darndest things

I love my job - not only because it is intellectually satisfying and lets me practice my introvert-ism, but also, because it provides some really good laughs.
Following are some of the utterance by clients:
"This discussion guide is so good and thorough, that I am sure that you have not done it by yourself."
"You are very pursuasive, aren't you?"
"I felt like you were telling me a story, until you interrupted it with a question".
"Oh you are from India. You guys have a great cricket team."
"Do you have openings in your office?"
"Its Doctor, not Mister."
"You are an Indian? But you speak English so well".

I kid you not - I have not even rephrased any of the above.

Doctor not Mister is probably from German client?
You are an Indian but speak English well is also from Western European non-British country I suspect
This discussion guide one is from Indian I guess
Do you have openings in your office is also Indian
You are very pursuasive could be Indian or Dutch
Cricket team one I struggle but likely from a nation with lesser or no cricket team at all.
