if you reffered to a woman as darlin', or hen here in nyc, you will probably get a dirty look, or if it's a co-worker, you would be fired for harassment.
lol kyles about the subtitles. i have friends from glasgow that have to speak to me like i'm really dumb, so i can understand them.
a few years ago, i dated a girl from co. donegal in ireland. great accent, and all of her sentences ended with "hi". the funniest thing was when we went to go see the movie, "the hours". she walked up to the ticket booth and asked the see the movie in her thick accent. the clerk could not understand her one bit because she kept saying, i'd like to see the ooh-rs. she finally had to spell it, "haich, o, u, r, s; the ooh-rs". lol.
