Fake accents and bug-fixing

What can be worse than UAT/bug-fixing? Fake accents, especially when you involuntarily overhear conference calls with people speaking withfake accents, and worse still, just when you are fixing those damned bugs. I let the moronic and sonorous sound of the whacko near my desk who's put-on accent is as inspiring as a Kanchi Acharya speech, get on my nerves. As a result i'm hungry, angry and virtually unproductive and left with a totally fucked up mood.
I just want to go home and "let law take its own course" as our charge-sheeted politicians always say........

  • Yes, those whacky fake accents can get pretty annoying, once the initial few seconds of humour is done and dispensed with! I get a lot of those here in Australia! Our fellow countrymen, once here, do their best to imitate the "Assie" accent and slang, often with disastrous results!

    Sigh!
