Oh Mick, you flirt
Does his wife know ??
I don't live all that far from the Appalachian Trail and I've never heard of trail angels. (or devils). Maybe I don't get out enough or read enough. But people's personalities differ greatly. My wife is nothing like me. I'll strike up a conversation with a total stranger at the slightest excuse, sometimes. My wife would never do that. Sometimes I go a little overboard, though. I once realized I had gone into a convenience store for a snack and had spoken to everyone in the store before leaving. When visiting my daughter in Germany last year, five minutes after arriving at their house, even before going inside, I was deep in conversation with their next door neighbor.
Mostly, however, I have always found people to be friendly and helpful and sometimes even knowledgeable wherever we've travel, including Germany, France, England and Scotland. Of all those countries, England was the place I had more trouble understanding people.
In what way, the accent?
Oh, yes, it was the accent, of course. I missed some of the slang, too. This wasn't so much true in London because half the people I spoke to seemed to be Ukrainian. On the other hand, I sometimes don't understand my mother-in-law's accent, either. It is an old Virginia accent.
