I got on a plane once and ended up in Cardiff, Wales. I was paying a
surprise visit to my girlfriend who was out. I ended up first in a hotel
then at a bar with the local football team. I complained about them all
talking Welsh then they informed me they were talking English.

I flew from England to Dublin with Ryan Air - a must do once only
adventure in its own right.
The hostess appeared to be Jamaican and spoke heavily Irish-ised
English with a strong Jamaican accent.
My wife and I thought that we could probably just about work out what
she was saying at least some of the time, safety drill and all.
Non native-English language speakers (except maybe Irish and
Jamaicans) would have had absolutely no chance of understanding
anything she said.

Shades of 'code talkers' :-)

When I first arrived in Australia permanently, I was surprised to see
Taggart (the original series with Mark McManus) was broadcast with
subtitles, it was all too much for Ocker ears!

I have heard of this happening in the USA, but didn't realise the Ozzies had
it that bad as well.
