I know i was missed terribly right? Uh huh, i see ya in tears so happy that I returned lol.
Okay maybe not, but i'm back anyway. I had a wonnnnnnnnnnnderful weekend and I hope everyone had as nice a V-day weekend as i did. I really mean that.
So today I have a funny to tell ya.
I bought a latte at sonic Friday....they're version anyway. I got to the window to pay for it and the twit at the window decided to edjimicate me. Here's how it went:
Idiot: I hope you don't mind but i wanted to let you know that when you ordered your drink you said it wrong. I don't mind but others might make fun of you for not knowing how to say things. You said "lot-tay" but it's really pronounced "lat", that's the rule for double t's.
Me " Uhhhhhhhhhh, okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy"
Idiot: people can be so confused with those things sometimes so you shouldn't feel funny or anything that you didn't know how to say it
Me: Ya don't say?
Idiot: oh yeah ya wouldn't believe the people we meet up in here and the way they say thangs.
Me: Well uhhhhhh okayyyyyyyyyy, regardless, before you correct another customer, i suggest you go home this evening and look up how to pronounce it.
Idiot: Oh i'm sorry, I wasn't trying to offend or anything, i just didn't want you to be embarrassed
Me: IF you look it up and can understand how to read pronunciations you just might realize i'm not the one who'd be embarrassed, but i will say since you probably were born in this town and went to the school here, it's likely not your fault. Hope that helps, can i have my "law-tay" now?
As one of The Heffers said "It's scary that she will likely breed too". UGH!
