A Bloody Addendum

In addition to Americans never saying "bloody", don't fake accents, ever. Most especially, do not try to fake British accents. Unless you've been classically trained in linguistics and spent seven years overseas, you don't do it well. It doesn't make you sound clever. It doesn't make you sound more helpful on the phone. It will not compensate for a shoddy appearance. It will, believe it or not, make you look worse.

Needless to say, the same person inspired this post. What you may glean from that is that this a-hole not only says "bloody" but from time to time fakes accents. As Bob White would say, he needs to be sent to Detroit.
