You're the one who said her brother has no accent...your words.<quoted text>
Fine example of why you are always judged 'clueless''nuts''disagree' and 'mean', Twister. You pulled what you wanted from that and converted it for your use. Didn't work for you this time either.
Sorry, thought that since I was speaking of Tennessee and Georgia any moron would know I was speaking of a 'southern' accent.
As for 'take the town apart', I don't think that has any regional distinction. And it was my phrasing as a 'yankee.'
Believe me, if someone leaves a child that cannot hear or can hear to sit alone in the dark for six hours, having no idea why they have been 'forgotten' in this area, and I hear about it, I'm going to 'take the town apart' too.
You wouldn't make an issue of it?
Why do you and others persist in the goofy notion that people reading your words are supposed to understand your idea that what you write is somehow shorthand for what is bouncing around in your befogged mind, and that we magically will get what you really mean? Take the freaking time to write EXACTLY what you mean. If people come up with a wrong interpretation of what you are actually thinking, but not writing, that's YOUR fault, not ours.
My English papers had very few red marks; yours must have been loaded with them.
Say what you mean and mean what you say.
