    A number of years ago I stopped over in Kansai outside of Osaka after working down in Okinawa.

    Wandering around seeing people with cans of beer out in the terminal I asked a Japanese guy (with difficulty using a language primer) if people were carrying brews in their luggage.
    He told me no that you can buy booze and sit wherever and enjoy.

    I zipped into one of the airport shops found the cooler grabbed a bottle of Grolsch.
    With primer in hand I approached the counter to pay up.

    As I was about to read from the primer the Japanese gal at the counter said:
    "You won't need that I was born and raised in Los Angeles"

    I'll never forget that :)

    I'm fluent in English and Malay, but my native tongue is Cantonese. Though I've been observed to swear and curse in several other Chinese dialects, and Tamil too for good measure!!

    I have no idea what the Cockney accent is, but this sounds like "The Sopranos" to me. Am I at least close?
    No, "The Sopranos" is a totally different accent....if you want a great representation of a Cockney accent, AND have access to Netflix, watch an episode of "Pinky Blinders":^)

    Funny how that happens. My wife lived in N. Jersey until she was in high school yet she doesn't talk like your typical New Yorker. Went to New York about 2 years ago and after a day there I didn't recognize her speech anymore. It was like I was married to Rosie Perez. It all came back and I had to de-program her when we got home.
    Okay, I am laughing at deprogramming your wife

    After 22 years of wedded bliss it's not the easiest thing in the world.

    My Native language is French, but I eventually learned decent English over the years.
