    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

    Real talk, yes, you should try to pronounce someone's name to them correctly. It sucks when people can't call you something you want to be called. If you know a guy called Mario and he wants you to pronounce his name a certain way, you should make a concerted effort to show respect to a dude and call them how they wanna be called.

    Mario is a mascot for a corporation with fans all over the world. Call him however you wanna call him.

    But I'm not actually worried that you don't know any of this, I'm just writing words to make sure I got this straight in my own head.

    I was showing a new coworker how a specific IF(COUNTIF) statement worked in Excel and she stopped me at one point to ask "Just to be clear, it's an eef statement, right?"

    "... that depends entirely on how you pronounce 'if'."

    I say lie-berry and nucular quite a lot. It started out ironic but now I sometimes do it genuinely. They're just nicer to say than the real words.

    They have everyone sign after they gave a long talk about what happened and what they were doing

  • PinfeldorfPinfeldorf Realtor Santa ClaritaRegistered User regular
    Ask yourself:

    Why would they make me sign a waiver to acknowledge a coworker has the 'rona? If you come to something other than, "they didn't, they had me sign away liability" you've hit closer to the truth than the initial statement was.

    They have not been and I fully know this as I deeply regret returning to that store but again I had little choice
    They went to long detail about talking about this and what to do if the press show up
    All I could think was yay now I work in a deathtrap but I remembered that game that was on the PSP where you built deathtraps and felt that would have been a better way to explain it than the long drawn out welcome to your doom talk

    I got a text about a job interview, which didn't specify if it meant today, so just in case when accepting I noted today wouldn't work because my niece is running a fever.

    I haven't heard anything back since.

    Maybe I'm being paranoid but with as critical as things are right now my anxiety and suspicion are reaching some wild goddamn levels right now.

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    I love the Dear Sister skit. At around the time it got popular, and while I was still happy to chat with my siblings, we actually had an email discussion about the song Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap. One of my brothers, for some reason, didn't like how Imogen Heap used her own voice for layering and would have preferred an actual chorale. A brother-in-law said that he liked the song and that the imagery was particularly good. Then we turned to a discussion of what it was about, and brother who didn't like the arrangement thought it was about a bratty child who doesn't agree with her father's rules (he was the father of several young ladies). While I thought it was about a woman who was tired of being ordered around by her lover or spouse (I had just gotten out of such a relationship at the time). When I found out that the song was about going through her parents' divorce when she was 12 or around that age, I was surprised at how close my brother came to the mark and kind of wanted to discuss it with him. Because though he was partially right, I know he never would have realized the divorce angle, and would have disapproved of it. Now I know the seed where it came from, it's more obvious that the images described are of what a house looks like when you're moving so I don't know why I didn't cotton on to that sooner.

    Of course at this point that brother and I don't speak anymore because he's an authoritarian asshole who's also paranoid that I'm trying to bully him into being "woke" or some bullshit just because I recommended that he watch Interstellar.
