Accents that drive you up the wall

Most Irish people that have become famous and are trying to play it cool. Esp. if they are still trying to play the "I grew up poor in Ireland" card but somehow I now sound like English aristocracy.

Who is this guy anyway?

I hate hearing Long Island accents on TV. I hear them in real life all day and I really don't notice, but on TV, drives me up a wall.

it's very rare that i hear a person who actually has the thick new york accent that you see on tv... and when i do hear such a person, the words "staten" and "island" usually can't be too far behind.

my grandma was from Massachusetts. for the longest time, she would add an r to the end of me and my sisters' names, so it almost sounded like she took off the last letter and replaced it with an r instead.

Around here, some still use their Dutch accents like some kind of status symbol even though they can speak perfectly without it. There's a long history to it (the entire community split in two over the Dutch language here)....but it annoys me to an extent.

Least-fave accents:

New York (sounds so thick and plodding)
South African (it's so unusual to me that I can't follow it)
Midwestern (don't like the way they say "car", etc.)

Most-fave:

Southern (women w/ this accent make me weak)
SoCal/Valley Girl (funny and cute when girls use it, annoying on guys)
Proper British
Cockney
Irish

No opinion:
Boston
Australian

New York accents drive me crazy My friends mom has a little one because she's from there, but its not annoying. But this one man who came to give a speech at our school had THE BIGGEST NY ACCENT EVER!!! He gave a great speech, but the accent drove me off the wall.

Australian accents are a little annoying at times too, maybe because my best friend moved there and now she has a little accent. It bugs me because it sounds nothing like her!

Essex accents, but only on certain people (mostly women). I don't like how people with Norfolk accents say "foo" for "few" and "hooge" for "huge" (though "bootiful" and "toon" don't bother me ) or how Americans (with any accent) say words like "cheers" (the "r" is too harsh with an American accent, which is why I consciously avoid saying it in shops).
