I'm standing in a queue for sandwiches behind a woman who is currently being served.
Woman: I'll have the tuna and mayonnaise please.
Server: What accent is that?
Woman: It's s Scottish accent.
Server: That's the most trusted accent in Britain according to a poll by Virgin media.
Woman: Yes, I've heard that before.
Server: Do you know what the least trusted accent is?
Woman: No.
Server: It's an Essex accent - my accent.
Woman: I've heard that too.
(At this point the woman has been served and turns to leave. She smiles politely at me).
Me: I don't trust you.
Woman: Why not? We've only just met.
Me: I'm from Yorkshire. We don't trust anybody.
