    Apologies if anyone here was there, but about 45 Glasgow uni accent-ers descended on the Laurieston last night (usually a quiet old-man pub) and screamed and shouted and sat far too close and nicked our chairs, and I was going to throw a table
    In a café in the uni this week, someone with the accent asked if they could take a chair while they were carrying it away.

    I am worried that I might have the accent. I am from abroad and lived in the States for a while, so I got a bit of an American slang in there as well as having adapted some words here, simply because it's not my first language.

    Arcadia, did you get a student discount at the lunatic fringe? I read something about it in old reviews but can't find anything on their side.

    Yes, I did. They just asked if I was a student when it came to paying, so I said I was and showed them my student card and they took money off.

    I hate Animal Diveristy! They dont actually teach you anything except that they pick up slugs in botanic gardens. And I have this stupud wiki page to write on an animal from the zoology museum. The only problem is that the scienfitic name o the animal ive been assigned is diffrent in the zoology museum that it is in the rest of the world. Honestly no idea why i chose this module.....

    Thank you. I actually walked over today. Their discount is quite a lot, 25 pounds instead of 32.50! They only do discounts from Tuesday to Friday though.
    (And I meant site of course).

    How is English going? You enjoying it a bit more now?

    I have a few friends doing it. One of them is doing a zoology degree - she loves it. The others are less impressed

    I win. I had someone come up to my table while I was sitting with some friends and take a seat away without saying a word. Weird.

    FFS, how hard is it to ask? It would take about three seconds of their life. Absolutely can't stand bad manners.

    That can't be true since my mum went to Cambridge, not Glasgow.

    OMG...it sounds like a stereotypical, teenage American girl only with a Glasgow accent. Listening to this made me want to punch someone (preferably her) in the face.
