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?”

10. That we’re actually not as antisocial a population as commonly assumed.

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)_/¯
