    Hehe, i agree. I hate the summer purely for the fact that there are so many of them around with their annoying, screaming children. Roll on winter when i get the beach to myself and they arent needlessly wondering around shops and nice streets taking up all the room.

    What;s worse is the "we're on holiday attitude" which results in people wearing the most hideous things, being as rude as they want and pretending they own the place. Grrrrr. At least they only stick to the well-known places I suppose .

    Lol. Couldnt agree more. They think they own the bloody roads. And yes they are very rude. Unfortunately, my job means I have to work directly with them and for some reason this means they think they are better than me

    Well its a fair point. No im joking. Anyway, the Isle of Wight accent is probably the worst of the lot. Thankfully its dying out. Mainly due to the overners tho it has to be said.

    Does anyone else find that when talking to friends who live in different parts of the country, they have a whole different range of slang words which make it sound like they're talking a different language? :rolleyes: I've been catching up with an old friend who'd moved to London and he keeps calling me "posh girl" because I don't know the terms he uses. I just think we're both familiar with totally different slang terms. So I thought I'd post a thread for those terms you've heard people from other areas use, but don't understand! And if you like post any particularly unusual local slang of your own here then go for it.

    So, to start off, my friend called me "nang" and I have no idea what it means! Anyone?!
    here in yorkshire we all talk slang even if we try not to!
