Quick Funny Story

On our arrival to the UK we had to take a bus from Heathrow Airport to the RAF base that we are stationed at. The bus driver who drove us to the base was English and had a fairly heavy accent. Our friends had met us at the airport and they took the bus back with us. When we got on the bus LaLa did not understand what the driver was saying because she was not accustomed to hearing a British accent. She looked at our buddy, M, and asked him in a most serious tone "Is the driver speaking Spanish?"

Was he Cockney?

They are very broad and use ryming slang to confuse us even more!

Saying that I live amongst Geordies so I can't comment really.

It's too funny seeing England through the eyes of an American and your descriptions are spot on.

The lack of rubbish (trash) bins outside the airport is for safety in case a terrorist leaves a bomb in one. No excuse for the disgusting littering habits of the Brits though.
