    When I went to Iceland on holiday, the locals thought I was Irish instead of Scottish. Don't know how they could mistake a heavy Glaswegian accent for an Irish one :laugh:

    I think to a lot of people the Irish, Welsh and Scottish sound very similar. I can tell the difference though.

    Is it? It's not particularly bad but...never saw it as good, normally it's just ppl who think all white British ppl are the same orrrr because I'm speaking to an Irish person orrrr because I'm chavvy :indiff:

    The Turks and Pakistani's are actually quite different, in terms of general appearance. You would be surprised.

    I have people randomly talking to me in Punjabi or Urdu or something and I just stand there trying to say 'No, I don't understand' in Hindi because I learnt that from Indian dramas :lol:
