    Hypothetical question: your landlord sends you a lease renewal to review before signing, asking if you have any questions. There's nothing you weren't expecting, but you notice that the lease specifies you are to begin paying rent in the wrong month. If you sign it as written, you will have one free month's rent, at least on paper. Do you tell them?

    Of course I told her, both because not doing so would be a dick move (and possibly I'd be liable for that month's rent anyway on the grounds I should have known it was a mistake? I have no idea whether that's a thing), and because a month's rent isn't worth a pissed-off landlord. But I'm curious what the thread think of the ethics of this situation.

    edit: a word

    I have a friend who works for an SV startup and his boss recently decided they needed a combination nanny/house manager.
    I have trouble articulating exactly why I find this repulsive. The idea of people being rich enough to employ ‘staff’ doesn’t bother me half as much as the demand that said employees be a) superhuman and b) also really keen to do all the boring bits of your life for you. I think that’s my basic issue.

    As we see with the current POTUS, if you are sufficiently shielded by wealth and privilege, you never have to actually grow up.
    This is, in fact, a condition that many aspire to.

    and Tox, if you think that description sounds very much like child care: *ding ding ding!*

    That’s probably for the best, that sounds like the kind of thing that would drive me nails-on-chalkboard up the wall if it was frequent

    I had a coworker who pronounced donut as dunnit, which was mostly an accent thing and certainly not something I could ever get on his case about but somehow it threw me every time. And we talked about donuts a lot.

    Tragically, there is more than one fellow branch manager who pronounces it "Lie-berry."

    I am not allowed to point and laugh, for professional reasons. In about ten years, though...

    Haha. Apparently Mario Cuomo pronounced it Marry-o. So a few people I know use that pronunciation. It drove me crazy when I first moved out here.

    When I was younger I used to pronounce it nucular, and it sounded so natural and normal to me that when a friend of mine noticed it and tried to correct me, he had to pronounce it the right way like half a dozen times before I even heard the difference

    My Dad grew up in the poorest part of town and has a weird dialect that is mostly Ottawan but also has that Letterkenny rural Ontario patter to it

    The accent comes out more when I'm talking to him, or when I pronounce certain words extremely wrong because that was how I was taught, like for meh-ree-oh (unless they're ten dollar words I saw in books and made my own pronunciations for that sort of show up of their own accord)

    I refuse to pronounce the letter H like he does though (which for him is haech)

    Accents are fine, Mario is itself an Italianization of the Latin name Marius, say it how you say it.

    About fifty percent of the time I say Mario the way my Dad does without thinking about it, and the other half is entirely intentional because between 1 and 3 people will yell at me that he SAYS his own NAME this is how you SAY IT
