Apparently many people seem to think that Bristol is in Wales. For those people who do not own a sat nav or even did geography at school Bristol is in the West Country. It is NOT part of Wales. Apparently many of those living elsewhere in the country believe that Bristol is in, or might as well be in South Wales. I have lost count of the amount of time when away on holiday when i tell people that im from Bristol ( for those who are hard of hearing and don’t recognise the accent ) they say Ah Bristol that’s in Wales.
I mean Wales is another country (well technically) For Fucks Sake. Its Across the bridge, a very big Bridge i have you know and you have to pay to enter the country but you dont have to pay to leave so i will say no more.
Now I love my West Country accent. But it dose not sound Welsh not in the slightest. My friends even get me to say certain words cos it makes them laugh and they like to take the piss. I don’t care, my accent shows where my roots lie and i’m proud of that! So if you cant understand me when you call me here are a few more useful phrases for you to learn
Your not a proper Bristolian if you can start a word beginning with H.
