The husband of one of my colleagues went to live in Aberdeen a few years ago. He is English, but reasoned that there would be no language barrier in the north of Scotland. On his first day at work his boss greeted him with the words: “Furry boots are comfy?”
“Yes,” the Englishman replied, hesitantly. “Yes. They are.”
It eventually transpired that he was being asked: “Where do you come from?” For reasons beyond my understanding, the accent in Aberdeen requires that the “wh” sound be pronounced “f”. Presumably this is an attempt to forge a communal identity beyond biscuit tins with pictures of terriers on them, cheap and breakable tartan umbrellas, and tam o’ shanters with fake ginger hair stapled to the inside.
