None of it is anecdotal nor is it BS, it happened and keeps happening time and again. If I talked completely Midlands dialect it would appear as a foreign language to some, so give me some credit for making sure everyone is able to understand me. You should know that if you travel 25 miles from a set point the lingo changes, which is probably the case in Switzerland also mate, bud, pal.
Of course it's anecdotal. You gave us an anecdote.

Well aware of dialect changes, ta.

I am doubting your assertion that everyone in the Midlands is xenophobic. Not your abillity to use a Midlands dialect.

Mate = fairly nationally understood
Bud/pal = tend to be Scottish
Flower/Petal = North East
Duck = East midlands
Lady = bit cringey everywhere unless you're also a Knight of the Round Table.
