I can't believe it. I've never heard it in person. At JFK atm. Dahhhling. It's like I'm in a 1950s movie.

    I've heard Boston accents before, like good will hunting. Never heard this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mid-Atlantic_accent except in old movies like rosemary's baby. I wasn't even sure people actually talked like that or if it was just for theatre/drama

      Makes sense then. If you're from the East coast it's pretty common. I know multiple people from that area and it's funny because I've heard one brother have the accent and another not.

    "Brahmin" refers to old, rich families from Boston. They don't have accents.

      Well, like John Kerry. He has a certain cadence to his speech.

    This is how I felt when I heard a beautiful Irish girl talk in an Irish accent. It was surreal.
