Ill Communication

The ship is in port and we've cleared up the mess from the previous load of passengers. We have ten or fifteen minutes until the next load start boarding, so we're taking a little break. I've been working with a couple of new people, and although they're nice enough, they are quintessential small-town Kentish. Rough as guts, as the Aussies would say.
“I want to check the football scores, but I can't get wifi on my phone in here.” says one.
“Have you tried by the windah?” the other asks, pronouncing 'window' with the unmistakable inflection of the English.
“The windah?”
“Yeah. The windah.”
“Where's the windah?”
“Over there. That windah.”
“Which windah?”
“That windah!”
“That windah?”
“Yeah, that windah.”
“What about that windah?”
“You can get wifi by the windah.”
“You can get wifi by the windah?”
“Yeah, you can get wifi by the windah.”
“That windah?”
“Yeah, that windah.”
“You can get wifi by that windah?”
“Yeah, you can get wifi by that windah.”
“Oh.”
He goes over to the windah and, sure enough, he can get wifi. By the windah.
You can get wifi by the windah.
