I am sure they dont- we get used to it. I am quite eloquent but when I am abroad I leave speaking to my partner a lot of the time. Very few people have a clue what I am saying!!! His accent is from Inverness area and that is far more proper than my Glaswegian with a touch of Edinburgh thrown in- ye ken?
