Haha no worries. I am not a rah. I enjoy rah bashing as much as the next person. I wish I actualy COULD bash my next door neighbour
She lost her bottle opener last night. Hilarious stuff. I swear she nearly cried
Walking through Jesmond on a Friday night and the place is full of them (I'm a local 6th Form Student), I've got to say, although I don't like to hear them talk, lots of them are worth a look. lol
I have to admit I do agree with you. I can tolerate how they speak but some of them are so dipsy.
grrreeeeaaaat i get told i speak with a posh accent cos im southern. im gonna get victimised!!! haha goodie. no im not grammar/private school or stuck up or anything so i reckon i'll be ok..lets hope.
I go to a public school (sixth form) in Newcastle and have no idea what the hell a "rah" even is.
Oooh dear. I was half convinced by the prospectus and course details to apply here, but everyone would HATE me! I go to a "public" school (remarkably arrogant, even for the usual self-congratulatory private sector lot) and have a fairly posh accent. To top it all off, with all the (unfounded I'm sure) 'racist' tags surrounding it, I'm not sure my Indian ancestry would be...most appropriate.
That said, I wouldn't say I'm snooty or elitist, but then few ever would...
Newcastle isn't really racist. Especially the student areas, Jesmond and Heaton are either very middle class or very bohemian and as such you don't see racism.
What are Rahs people?
Yes Rahs are mainly posh and arrogant people.
I live in Castle Leazes at the moment, and before I came I was seriously worried about what I'd heard about the ''RAHfactor''.
I guess I'm pretty lucky because most of the girls and guys on my corridor [and even my whole block in Blackett and on my course] are not rah and would be mortified if someone suggested that they were...BUT...Leazes is still full of them! However, just because there are a few around, it doesn't mean you have to become a rah. It just creates opportunities to have a laugh with your friends, such as when a rugby guy walks into the dining hall wearing ugg boots...or so-called MUGGS [man ugg boots :|]
Yeah I have to agree I'm at Castle Leazes and the rumours are true, the rahs dominate the place. And I know it's mean but at first the southern accent was a bit of a novelty coming from scotland but now that posh southern accent really grates on me!! I think you tend to gravitate towards people with similar interests tho and I have a really good group of non-rah mates and I love leazes. Also It's good to mix with a variety of people. I've not really come in to contact with ppl like "rahs" back home and some of them I really get on with!
There are loads who get on my tits tho. Like the ones that are so far up their own arses. I hated freshers week cause I was hanging around with a group of really posh girls and found alot of the time when u met people theyd ask "what school did u go to?" like assuming theyd know your school then when they figured out you went to some state school theyd never heard of you'd see them loose interest and go off to talk to someone else...yes seriously! Also the way some people reacted when you said you were from Glasgow, it was like saying ud just murdered a child
Glasgow is pretty bad though... Ever glassed someone?
