Must have been a Scoucer, a Geordie or a Scot<quoted text>
Some years ago when I lived in Germany, I was leaving Wiesbaden Air Base when I stopped and picked up a guy hitchhiking just outside the main gate. I took him for German - which I spoke - but couldn't understand a damn thing he was saying. I finally realized he was actually English. Though I still had a hell of a time understanding him.
I was once amazed while in the US to see an old episode of Taggart (a Scottish detective, pretty broad Glasgow accent). There were subtitles!!!
