I come from an immigrant family and am used to listening to people with sometimes unintelligibly heavy accents. I also grew up in a city with a very diverse population and have lived in different parts of this country and have traveled abroad, so I am absolutely the person who gets to decide which accent is the best and which is the most annoying.
Scottish brogue. Good lord, my knees are weak and my panties are already around my ankles. There is little someone with a Scottish brogue can't get from me. The timbre, the lilt . . . yum.
British educated Indian. I LOVE this accent because it sounds very snooty but also has a great slant to it that keeps it from being so very, very white. And colonial.
New Jersey. Yeesh. My ears. Just write it down or text me, o.k.?
Teenagers. Yes, they have an accent. It's the same no matter where they are from - annoying.
What accent makes your knees weak? Which one has you stuffing your ears with cotton?
