A Wisconsinite Accent?

I've never lived anywhere but here - Wisconsin.  However, I've been told we have an accent...really?  I know my brother-in-law from Mississippi has an accent and talks R E A L  S L O W.  I've also been told that we talk fast.  I don't know about that either - my brother-in-law sure is a "fast talker.." if you know what I mean.  Now, this is all in fun....

Since I've switched over to an iPhone, I've noticed that Siri doesn't understand me.  The microphone feature for texting doesn't understand me either.  It's not just me, but my whole family.  We decided that maybe Siri doesn't speak "Wisconsin" - do any of you have this problem.   I've had to repeat myself at times 5 or 6 times.  This is frustrating but funny.  I've laughed at some of the things "she" thinks I've said or asked.

So, maybe we do say things a little different up here...Blessings from Ringle, WI.
