Annoying

Southern accents (specifically DEEP southern )
Boston accents
South Jersey accents


Sexy

British accents
New York accents (New York City in particular...specifically BROOKLYN )
Jamaican
accents

As superficial as it sounds, I don't think I could put up with the accents I listed as 'annoying', day in and day out. No shade thrown to the people from those areas, with those accents, but it would grate my nerves to hear them speak every day.

Annoying:

On The Fence:
Southern Accents--There are sweet southern drawls and there are some that make the person sound unitelligent. It really is a fine line.
