What Did You Say?
Yesterday I was standing in line at the grocery store. There was a man standing in front of me who turned around and made an attempt to pay me a compliment. He said (and I hope my ‘spelling’ matches the pronunciation of the words he chose),
“Dayum Ma – Whachoo lookin all hawt fo tuhday!?”
So here’s my question – Why do people talk like this? I don’t understand it? Its one thing to speak in a different language but to butcher a language by changing the pronunciation of words is silly! At least that’s my opinion.
I’m just saying – if a man would like to pay me a compliment – he would be better off saying,
“Pretty dress – you look nice today.”
And another thing – I find it exhausting to have to decipher the meaning of certain words by pulling up Urban Dictionary all the time.
The last time I checked a “ratchet” was,
‘a mechanical device that allows continuous linear or rotary motion in only one direction while preventing motion in the opposite direction’
NOT (and I got this from Urban Dictionary)
‘a diva that believes she is every man’s eye candy but is unfortunately wrong’
Where do people come up with this?
Anyway – these are my opinions. Rant over. Carry on.
