Have you ever tried speaking in English with someone who has a thick Scottish accent? It is embarrassing, as a native English (well, American) speaker, to have to ask the Scottish person to speak very slowly.

The language situation in Scotland is so complicated that it takes three Wikipedia articles to begin to explain it:

Scottish English
Scots language
Scottish Gaelic
