View Full Version : I love my "southern accent"

I suppose it makes me sound ignorant and gullible.

I'm able to keep the credit-card-fraud cold-call assholes on the line for an inordinate amount of time by just upping my twang a little, and putting that question-intonation on the last word of my remarks to them.

I think today's cold-caller guy, who sounded like he was from New Jersey, actually got cut off by his boss or somebody in the middle of my schtick, because I really had him going when somebody cut him off in mid-sentence.

I tried doing the gay-guy intonation the last time they called, but that didn't last very long. I guess I don't do a very good gay-guy voice.

Fugkers have even managed to spoof my neighborhood's three-digit exchange prefix on my caller ID, and make the area code not even show up.

Those of us G-d blessed with being born in the south do have an ability to speak for hours, slowly, and say nothing at all.
And when required, as when around those not blessed by G-d, we can revert back to our private language and confuse even the NSA snoops.:biggrin:

I actually got this one debating the difference between a "where" and a "what."

He started telling me that he was trying to talk about a "what" and that I kept asking "where." He tried to explain that "Where" is a place, "like mountains or something." It was about then I'm pretty sure his boss cut him.

When they call here, I always tell them, "hold on there, let me get mama, can't understand a damn word you're saying!"
Then lay the phone down by the TV.
One fool stayed on the line for over ten minutes before he hung up.:wink:

You too, huh?

Doing shit like that gives me great pleasure through the slow parts of my day.

Sometimes I just let 'em talk on speaker, while I'm doing other stuff, and just yuuup, and uhhh huh as I need to..
I LOVE fukking with those guys. (And gals)

Using gibberish is fun too. Totally incoherant sounds complete with dramatic inflections. They give up pretty rapidly.

I've no time for phone games, but having a southern accent is a definate plus! Folks from up north believe you think slowly because you talk slowly. It's like being a mind-reader because they think they can s-p-e-l-l out words and Southrens and children aren't able to follow!!

Non southerners were placed upon this earth for the sole amusement of those of us blessed by G-d with being southern born and breed.

Though I now live in AZ, far southern AZ I might add, having been born and raised in the great state of SC, home of telling them northern Federals to kiss off and take a hike, and then having borne the brunt of Northern Aggression during round one of that unpleasant period, some, yankees mostly, refer to as a civil war, was nothing civil about being invaded and put upon, and what those fellows did to Atlanta, poor manners all the way around with that one, that was sure enough, I had the pleasure to insure retribution for the devious acts committed in the name of freedom, them people would not know freedom if'd it bit them in their fat ass, while pushing troops thru basic training, and let me tell ya something, no mud hole nor wall was too deep or too big to send them boys into for the sins committed by their fathers.

And while I'm on it, let me tell ya one more thing,,,,,:D:D:D

I got news for ya--It works both ways.

After my time in New Jersey recently, where I became reacquainted with the Philly/Middle Atlantic dialaect, I amuse myself here in Georgia when, for example, a string of folks at every aisle at Home Depot keep asking me how I'm doing today.

Me: "How'm I doo'n? Aaahh... My wife's a pain in the ass, breakin' my bwalls; my dwaughtah's married to a frickin' loser, an' I got a rash on my ass dat's so bad, I can't even si'down. But you know me... I can't complain...

You hush up now.

I've met and talked with WEG. Maybe I'm immune but I thought him rather neutral. I think I'M neutral. Yankees apparently do not.

You, on the other hand, are the real deal. When you talk, it sounds like Don Williams without the music.

Nobody could beat my old neighbor, Mr. Gene. Between no teeth and a giant dip of Bruton Scotch Snuff, a typical observation on my truck tune-up might be, "Shaw dang shoot on mah gollah, purt' near forty mile on border... Might be yer thumbtrash..."

When my teachers piss me off, often I might add, I stop speaking English and go back hard south, then even they know I'm not a happy camper!:)

Try as I might, can 'twrite like I talk sometimes, toooooo much book learnin!:eek:

Now my wife is another story, a true southern bell at ALL times.:love:

If you go do some research... you will see that the Southern gentile accent from the late 1800's is actually a variant of aristocracy proper English.

It's kinda like speaking English designed for a 45 record on 33 speed.

I do the same thing with my fake Indian voice when I get calls from Indian call centers. They don't even notice I'm doing it, it just sounds normal to them.
