I was working at an Aussie roadhouse (petrol station, cafe, shop,camping ground) on the west coast of Australia when I went backpacking in 2001. I served an English couple who had midlands accents so asked them where they were from as I'm from Birmingham. It turned out after chatting that I went to school with the girl's brother and we had been in all the same classes for 5 years of high school. The place was in the middle of nowhere, about 100 miles from the nearest town. It definitely brightened my day as the woman who I worked for was mental!!
