I think it's "001" but it's been quite a while since I've used a commercial phone to dial froim overseas to the US.

I can appreciate that some people couldn't understand you. I answered an ad for a model car kit once and the seller was in Jackson, Miss. I've heard Southern before but I was somewhat taken aback by what I heard. I've often wondered if he had as much trouble understanding me as I did him. :)

A friend of mine, World War II vet, used to tell the story of how he got wounded during the Battle of the Bulge. He had gotten lost and after a day of wandering around he blundered into the British lines. In the dark and confusion he got a bayonet in the face. "Goddam Welshmen couldn't speak English any better than the Damn Germans". I can hear him growling that yet.

You might fit in here then. We have a bit of a German sound to our speech. Most of Lancaster County's population arrived from the Rhineland or Switzerland. We also have some Huguenots and Scots-Irish. I remember reading in a book once that Americans have a hard time with Yorkshire accents. Something about them being 'impenetrable'. PS. Missed the movie.

No, but it's real easy to slip into it. Bill Shuey's story reminded me of one printed in the local paper awhile back about a local guy who was wounded in France. He sounded so German to the US Army docs that he found himself in with the German prisoners. It took a lot of convincing and some time before he was released to rejoin his own unit.
