I recognize that I have an accent, but it does not sound the way THEY say it does. Hurumph! I don't know why this bothers me so much but it really chaps my ass. Listen! It's out and about, not oot and aboot- you don't seem to see the difference even when I re-enunciate. You say it owt and abowt, all long and drawn-out like: what you're describing sounds more like the Newfoundlander accent, but even there it's not quite 'oo' it's just an even sharper 'ou'.
I can get cranky about some pretty pointless shit, I know.
