    I don't really like some of the accents some regions have. To be fair, they can't really do anything about it.

    Don't like the Essex, birmingham, or geordie accent.

    The Northerners I used to room with going to sports competitions never used to shut the door when they were having a dump. They were perfectly happy to have a conversation in plain sight, even in mid-strain.

    This is more of a Londoner thing (well for me personally anyways) I'd never used the term "going into town" until I went up north. I found it weird at first but its normal now.
