You are right, but they (at least those who have contact to "foreign"
people) should be _able_ to supress theit accent.
Ich bin mal in Dresden gelandet. Der Koffer war unterwegs kaputt gegeangen
und ich mußte in irgendein Büro. Die Dame dort wollte wissen, was der denn
gekostet habe, fragte aber ständig "was kommt der". Nach dem dritten mal
konnte ich dann schließen, was sie meinte. Sie hingegen hatte keine Ahnung,
warum ich nicht antworte ;-)

Oh, it might be very shameful if you speak with an southern accent. Or Jim
