My new-ish job involves telesales, (ooh it's so fun), and from my few weeks of working there I can say that the Welsh and Scots are by far more polite then the English. They seem to understand that it's just someone doing a job and if they're not interested then they'll say so in a polite way, whereas English people just tend to hang up. I haven't been sworn at yet, which is a suprise, but hang-ups from the English is a regular thing.
So yeah, I love the Welsh and Scots.
The best rude person I've had so far was an aggressive 75-year-old woman. That feisty lass made my day.
Go to South and West wales - the more populated areas and you'll find most of us can't speak a word of Welsh...except what we read off road signs...
The Welsh? Most Friendly? The people who instantly go into the most throaty Welsh accent they can the second a foreigner enters the pub?
Let's face it. Everyone wins joint last place...
Go on, tell me, which of the emergency services are you going for this time?

> your home number.
Ok, it's a deal.
Are you a woman between the ages of 18-49? Not because these are the only people I will give my number to, but because of what I'm selling.
I have yet to call a Geordie.
