i don't pick up accents, JV, but my parents do.
they used to travel a lot and would come home with southern accents a lot. hypocrites, lol... they made thier children speak perfect English; even local accents were taboo.
i don't even speak like a Pittsburgher. i wasn't allowed to as a kid, and it stuck with me.
then when it's finally ingrained in us that we must speak clearly to others and without accent of any sort, they hop on a plane and return sounding like Scarlett O'Hara and calling people they don't know 'honey' and referring to iced tea as 'sweet tea'.

She lapses into their speech rhythm immediately...very funny, and often disconcerting to the person she is speaking to!
Hey, I have heard people from Alberta say "oot." I think it's cute.

My aunt lived in NY state her whole life then moved to NC... you should hear her accent.. sounds like she was raised there.

if you want to drive an irish person crazy, start to speak with a irish accent around them. it's infectious, especially after a few, but it really annoys them.
now scottish accents are fun, and i don't think they mind, so long as you are buying.
