Oh aye, when mam comes round she always tries to recite that little Barry masterpiece:

"She doesn't know how much i'm sending home. Unless by some amazing coincidence she has access to my pass-book for the West Bromwich and District Building Society."

When she finishes it (about ten takes average) I say, "Who asked your opinion?!"

Yup, cracks her up every time, the lovely old crumblie. :)

In the late 1980s or early 1990s, my mother has had to apologise at social gatherings for my impressions.

Great topic this one.
A long time ago my wife and I were signing up for life insurance, and the rep started filling out the name of my wife as Pat. I said it's not Pat wondering where he got that from. It was because I'd been calling her pet.
Meit in a geordie accent that sounds nothing like "mate" in kiwi. Then a work mate was copying me and it took me a while to realise that he was. I had no idea what he was going about. Meit? WTF is meit?

Bollocks, double bollocks, what's the word then (still use this all the time at graft) graft, ta-ra for a bit.
Typical, I might have known, Arfur, hut, the beers passable, you passes enough of it, my baby takes the morning train...
It goes on and on. Ahh, happy days...

Auf Wiedersehen, Pet wrote:I would love have a mate named after one of the lads.
I have worked with loads of people, and not one of them has ever had a characters name.
I did actually kind of work with a Dennis, but not once did he ask if I wanted a cup of tea, just so I could reply......"I don't want anymore to drink Dennis!!....."

At work I have a Barry (who has no idea why I always say Barry in an Oz geordie accent) a Dennis, Neville, Wayne (who always grumbling about something and is now pronounced "Whine"in an aussie accent), Oz (a couple of them, australians) a couple of Erics (canny lad, for an eric) and footy mates called Bomber and Moxy, also used to have a dog named after Moxy!
Ally is me I suppose (Alastair)
Funny that, when I started writing this I only thought of Barry but I got the whole lot.
Top of the bill!

Kind of related...

When I was about 18/19 there was a station on for the summer only in the local town where I worked (1995 ish), and they would have competitions and phone ins for stupid stuff, and everyday like clockwork we would ring in...

To stop the local people who were listening from getting bored of hearing us everyday, probably a few hundred, we would change the names everyday, and for a few days we used Auf Pet characters. I can still hear the guy reading out the correct entries for the day.....

"blah, blah and yes, Dennis, Neville and Barry have got it right, it was Washing Powder....isn't that the guys from Auf Wiedersehen, Pet?...anyway lads, you got it right..... blah blah blah...."

Still makes me laugh even today....

I also won the chance to go and read out the weather, I declined.

I often use "what's the word"; and if anyone asks me "what are you doing here?", it takes a lot of strength to stop myself replying with "everybody's got to be somewhere, sir".

That's all wonderful stuff.
I suffer because when I am in presence of Germans, I speak AWPish, even my mother can't understand me.
