    We have a new girly in here who's from South Africa.

    Her voice drives me to distraction - I want to throttle her!

    She's known to everyone in the office as...The Voice...behind her back of course ;)

    No. Neil said some of the other girlies call her that.

    I try to avoid her cuz her voice sounds like nails scraping a blackboard.

    Actually, now that ya mention it, ya'll sound kind of funny to me. ;)

    But if we're talking accents I can't tolerate, that would be east coast New York/New Jersey accents. BLECK! SHUT UP OR I'LL HAVE TO PUNCH YOU IN YOUR STUPID MOUTH!!!! Ugh. I'm tellin ya, I HATE that accent.

    I would say of all the world's accents, I'm particularly enchanted with the Irish accent. Not that each isn't in it's own way interesting. ;)

    Cass - I agree about the SA accent - my typing teacher was from SA and her accent would drive me scatty... that and she kept calling me Rachel... Don't get me wrong TTG, but when your name is Rebecca it's an annoyance! ;)

    Another accent I dislike - Northern Irish! But that's more to do with the person talking than anything else.
    To explain - both Liam Neeson and Ian Paisley are both from Ballymena, Northern Ireland. IHMO Liam has one of the sexiest voices going but Paisley has a voice that makes nails down a blackboard sound sweet!

    Accents I like are more dependent on who's talking but I like Scottish, Yorkshire, Kiwi/Aussie (blame Hugo Weaving!)and of course Geordie! :D

    I'm afraid I generally can't stand Northern England accents. Everything they say seems to be in the form of a question.
