Thread Name: Worst accent or what?
Subject: RE: Worst accent or what?
Yeah, Spaw. I was suprised when folks I knew in down south could almost pinpoint the street someone was born on...

Worst accent? Me, 1989, Waffle House waitress in MawGUMry AllahBAMmah. I was informed (by a cook that was certain the South would rise again-- at any moment now) that the remnants of my Texas drawl had no place in that bastion of the good ol'boy. After much tutelage, and threats of being locked in the walk-in freezer, I managed a pretty fair "Scallywaggin' carpetbaggin' integraytah" but that was about it.
