You know I am not bothered by people's accents-UNLESS they want to make fun of my strong southern "country hick" accent-and their's is just as strong- for ex.- once a Boston cab driver made fun of me and you should have heard him. !

But speaking too loudly is a differant story-no matter the accent-that is not being considerate of the people around you.
