I hate accents. I have a really hard time understanding someone with an accent. It doesn't matter what kind of accent it is, I can't understand what the fuck they are saying. Which is why I spent 9 months of hell working in a neighbourhood primarily populated with Chinese immigrants. Sadly I did not get any better at understanding the accents of people with Mandarin or Cantonese as their first language.

Some accents I can understand fine, others confuse the hell out of me. I'm not sure what the x factor is - it's not always just because I'm more familiar with one or the other.

On another note, I hate hate HATE people who pop up outside the line to ask a question or ask for something. Wait in line patiently like everyone else has managed to do! You're not special! And in Foreign Hag's case (asking if she was "in the right queue"), the answer was LINED UP RIGHT NEXT TO HER! I know who the real "simple" one is.

People need to understand that sometimes people won't understand your accent, it's nobody's fault.

A Jamaican guy flipped at me because I couldn't understand what he was saying. Simmer down, bitch.

Nocturnesthesia

I always feel like a total fucking tool when that happens. Seriously, if your English is that bad, screaming at me and/or getting pissed off if I respond wrongly isn't going to make matters any better.

Usually if I'm a customer at a place where the clerk speaks a different language, I end up pointing and gesturing a lot. Yeah, I probably look like Koko the fuckin' Monkey, but at least I'm not screaming unintelligible curses at people.

Speak to me with a Russian, Indian, British, Bronx, or even Oriental, I'm fine. Speak to me with the speed of a New Yorker combined with the accent of a deep southerner, I'm screwed...

I"m pretty good with accents,it's taken me a while....had a boyfriend yeaaaarrrsss ago with a german grandmother...the first few times i met here i just smiled and nodded. Usually i can also pinpoint what language they're speaking, even if i don't speak it. I'm good enough in french that i can tell a custy "Mr/MRS/MS, i do not understand your english, please speak to me in french, what would you like?". I'm good with the germanic-ish peoples, as well as the spanishy types. However....I don't speak old people. I simply can't understand why you would stand 5 feet away and whisper...or worse and then get angry when i can't understand you....

Just a few years ago I had a really strong Scouse (Liverpool, England) accent. When I went outside my own city nobody could understand me, so I worked hard to reduce it and enunciate and now everybody can. I don't get why that bitch didn't get that her accent is too strong and she needs to SPEAK CLEARLY or gtfo of line. You worked hard to try to understand her when it's her problem, so she's obviously the dumb one.
