Literally Every Conversation You’ll Have About The North/South Divide at Uni

Where does the North actually begin? 🤔🤔🤔

1. The one about how drink prices are very different.

Up North, the bar is ridiculously cheap. Down South, you can expect a double to cost you an arm and 2 legs.

2. And how, shockingly, accents are a thing.

If you didn’t think you had an accent, trust me, you do now.

3. The one where it’s established that we eat very different things.

Yorkshire puds and jam? Only a Devon thing, okay.

4. And call our meals different names, too.

For Southerners, tea is something you drink, not a meal you eat during dinner time.

5. The argument over how Northerners are more friendly than Southerners.

In the North, having a conversation with a complete stranger is commonplace, but in the South, you will be lucky to get a smile from a shop assistant.

6. And how taxi journeys are on opposite ends of the spectrum.

In the North, taxi journeys will involve having control of the aux cord, whereas in the South, expect a quiet, no-speaking journey.

7. Speaking of, Southerners will relish at how readily available transport is for them.

The real test of whether someone is Northern or Southern is to tell them their train will be more than a 10 minute wait. In the North, this kind of service would be considered, frankly, too good to be true. In the South, anything longer than 2 minutes is atrocious and worth an angry tweet at the train company.

8. Something about the weather.

Southerners just don’t know how to handle the weather like the Northerners. True fact.

9. The one about how the South has the nicest beaches.

Supposedly.

10. And the nicest everything, actually.

Because everywhere in the North looks like Coronation Street, right?

11. And finally, no matter where you’re from, there will always be a debate on where the North/South dividing line actually is.

Liverpool? Leeds? Sheffield? Birmingham? Who even knows. This debate is never-ending.
