I don't use any.

I guess SF knows this, and is placing that add, and Huckberry ads every time I am on SF.

Kind of creepy.

My gf kept correcting me saying there's no such word as 'irregardless' and it is in fact just 'regardless'. We looked it up and she's more or less correct. Irregardless is just a colloquially used phrase but it's a redundant double negative so instead just say regardless.

It's one of those fun word mashups, I think. Irrespective and regardless.

Another fun one is automagically

That's what it sounds like when you light a match near something inflammable.

You treat her like you'd treat any friend with a problem
.
A,) create a safe & comfortable space. This means privacy and remove anything she can use as a weapon-ashtrays-letter openers whatever.

B.) set up a covert camera and mic in case she goes postal & then tells the cops you were abusing her.

C.) In a quiet loving non judgmental way, say that in your observation she is having a slight weight problem. You don't care, your attracted to her for her deeper qualities.
It's just that in this culture she will be treated better if she loses a few pounds. It 's just part of the very superficial world we live in. Express that you know it may be difficult but your her man and you will go on the diet-juiceclense-exersise with her. If she commits to this, your with her every step of the way. If she elects to remain a plus size, your still with her.

If she wants to lose the weight,man up and support her in any way she needs,

If she elects to remain a plus size, lose her number, block her on social media, avoid her at all functions. If you go to the same church, become an atheist. In short lose the bitch.smile.gif

Asian Americans that use the word ridiculous and work it into every conversation and persist in mispronouncing it. They pronounce it as re dick a lass

Race track announcers who pronounce the word strength as stren th as opposed to string th

Other then these two things, I'm the personification of tolerance in all things great and small.

I have a coworker who pronounces idea as "eye-dee-er" ('er' as in 'her' minus the h) and it's so fucking funny.

The worst was when we had a 1x1 meeting to talk about things we're working on that could be patented. The number of times she said idea throughout that conversation.. good god.

My tongue was practically bleeding by the end of it.

I laugh evrytiem.

Is that a typographical error (typo) or do you really pronounce the word as "string th"? (I'm assuming from context that that's how you think it should be pronounced.)

It's not how I think it should be pronounced. It is how the word is supposed to be pronounced I can see how I may have presented this in a manner that is confusing. Here is a link that will illustrate how it should be said

Do you hear the vowel as an "i"?
