17 Things Northern Students Will Never Understand About Southern Students
There are some things Northern students will simply never understand about Southern students.
1. The fact that just because we’re Southern, it doesn’t mean we’re “posh”.
2. And that if we’re not posh, it doesn’t mean we’re cockney.
It’s not one or the other. 🙄
3. How ironic we find it when we’re ridiculed for our accents by anyone from the North.
“Have you heard yourselves?”
4. Because, honestly, if anyone’s accent is baffling, it’s yours.
5. That we don’t all live in mansions and we’re not all best friends with the queen.
6. And the pain we suffer being judged for the fact that we don’t butcher words with vowels in them.
“Hahahaha it’s glass not glaaaarrrrse.” 😩
7. Because secretly we’re very proud of how well we speak.
Thank you v much.
8. How much it frustrates us when people consider London as the entirety of “the South”.
9. And the extent to which we’ll defend our hometowns.
No matter how small.
10. That we’re actually not as antisocial a population as commonly assumed.
Just because we don’t have conversations with strangers at bus stops it doesn’t mean we’re not nice people.
11. And that the only reason we joke about you having gravy with everything is because, well, you kind of do.
Asking a northerner if they've got gravy is like asking Thor if he's got his hammer

12. How scared we are to reveal our Southern roots in a pub anywhere outside of the South, especially when the Six Nations are on.
13. And how easy it is for us to start picking up weird accents and suddenly think we’re having an identity crisis.
14. That wearing a coat on a night out doesn’t make us weak. It’s just good sense.
We like not having hypothermia. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
15. And the anger we feel when anyone tells us we should be saying “dinner” and “tea” rather than “lunch” and “dinner”.
Just found out that northerners call lunch 'dinner'. Absolute scenes
