Mate, are you sure we’ve never met?Sorry, couldn't resist
Literally spent my whole service getting ripped with this ???
Various courses I did for instructional type things, I could never turn my geordie accent down. In fact in front of a class or addressing a group of people it went stronger ? earning me the nickname ‘turbo geordie’ ?
Overseas was the worst. Speaking with some US Marines once and they asked me if English was actually my first language
These were the days before Geordie Shore was on the tv.
Now get constantly asked if I know any of them.
You can’t win!
