Have you ever been criticized for being too well-spoken?

I have this problem all the time. People make a big deal about the way that I talk and say I must not be from here. I live in the South in the US. Many people here have country accents and are very proud of that.

They talk down to me because I don't sound like them. They say I sound too "proper". I don't use a whole lot of slang and people seem to think that's strange.

It's gotten so bad that I've even been considering moving away to a different part of the country to not have to deal with that anymore.

Has anything like this ever happened to any of you?
