An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

They Just Delivered Several New Sears-Bought Home Appliances and Installed Our Cable Modem and All I Have to Say Is:

  • Chrys

    I just realized that all my life I have been pronouncing the days of the week Mondee, Tuesdee, Wednsdee, etc. and in my mind it sounded exactly the same as when others pronounced it MonDAY, TuesDAY, etc.. I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry. add to this my last name is Bundy (no joke) I think I may need therapy (I, too, am from Central Illinois, baybee)

  • I’m drinking “soder.” Like whoa.

  • Well up here north in Warshington state, there is no “the” before 5. It’s also never just “take 5 to highway 16…”

    Were we say “I-5”. I’m pretty sure the change happens somewhere down around Portlend, Oragon. (not Port-LAnd, Oreegon)

  • Slackjaw, ssshhhh. You’re gonna give us Portlanders a bad name.

  • K

    Just had to enter the interstates of California discussion. After spending more time that I care to remember of my 20’s on the 101, the 118, the 405 and the 5, I am of the opinion that California freeways are their own entities and therefore are deserving of “The”. Now spending time on the The 50 and The 80, it’s a California thing.

    Forgot to pipe in on the 2 formative high school years I was subjected to Salt Lake City. Is it still 7-11 still “the sev” and is Creek still “Crick”. I never could bring myself to say I was “sloughing” when I chose not to attend classes at the fine high school known as Brighton.

    when i first got my washing machine i washed everything i could find. i love when the laundry is done (not so much the actual doing).

    congrats. 🙂

  • Caelly

    I didn’t actually realize there was another way of saying “sloughing” until I was 17 or so. You mean kids in other states “ditch” or something? Oh My Heck!!

    Heh heh.

  • Emily

    I not only add Rs to the word wash, I ordd thorm to orvry word I corn porsibly think orv!

  • Evidently my 85 year old grandmother has no soul.

  • b

    to help cure me of my st louis accent, i was told to practice:

    “i was washing forty-four quarter barrels of corn in the corner of the barn with lorne greene”.

  • I think my ears might actually be bleeding.

  • My granny says “warsh” for wash. She has a lot of soul, but not just because of that.

    Congrats on your new, well-appointed digs.

  • Kristin

    I think the Pittsburgh area wins the award for stupidest accents/pronunciations. Not only do we say “warsh,” we say “heel” instead of “hill,” “dahntahn” and “ahrn” instead of “downtown” and “iron,” and my all-time favorite, “yinz.” Check out…it‘s scary.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
