Coronation Street – Barlows visit an alcoholics’ recovery meeting
Posted Mar 14 2010 12:00am
When I used to deliver the long-defunct Montreal Star through the late afternoon streets in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield there was an elderly customer on East Park, who shall remain nameless lest her great-great-grandchildren read this, who would meet me at the door on pay day, in her bathrobe and slippers, often without her teeth in. Her accent belied her country of origin but she clearly did not speak in the same circles as His or Her Majesties. Her biggest concern, “Have you got the TV guide with’ou?”
You’ll know that the dialect and accents are not the only things I can relate to in this clip and, glaring faux pas aside, I hope you’ll enjoy it!
