Talk Like A Human

I normal don’t have a problem with people choosing to sound like an idiot. It’s a personal choice if you want to make people to think you failed kindergarten or not. However there are two things that make me want to bitch slap people.

The first one is when people add an X in ask or asked making it into axe or axed.

Why? There is no fucking need for it. It just makes it sound like you never stepped foot in a school. By all means be stupid but you don’t have to sound like you are. Where did the X even come from? It’s not like X is a commonly used letter in the English language. Some people just shouldn’t be allowed to open their mouths.

Speaking of people who shouldn’t be allowed to talk that brings me to the second thing that drives me crazy.  People who pronounce the silent H in words.

I remember be taught in first or second grade that you don’t pronounce the H in words like what and where. So who decided once you become fully grown you can start pronouncing that H? Did the H get jealous and decided it was time for him to start talking?

Some people blame Hollywood for whole H not being so silent thing but I blame stupid people emulating Hollywood. I mean it’s not a trend if only a few people do it. People should be smart enough to put a stop to things at are clearly stupid and make you sound stupid along with it.

All I ask is for people to use their brain and if you don’t have one keep your mouth shut so I don’t have to hear your nonsense.  

I’m heading off to find a way to cool off (stupid English weather). As always stay safe.


The Honest Bitch


  1. Boy do I hear you on this one!!!! I can let it go until I am with someone often enough that I have to put my hand over my mouth to keep from screaming out the correct word! But then, I suck at spelling so.....

  2. I have a different take. I'm not a racist or sexist or any -ist like that. I'm a smartist. If you sound dumb like this, I will immediately think you're a worthless piece of shit and quietly seethe in hatred at you.

  3. I agree 100%!! I can't stand when people mispronounce common words.

  4. I have to give you a standing ovation on this post. I am in college and I cannot tell you how many people seem to forget how to speak English. The actual grammar and syntax is far worse. I cannot for the life me figure out why an educated person would want to sound stupid. Where I live, people pronounce library as libary and deaf as death. Drives me absolutley batty.

  5. i know, i think it becomes a very bad habit. If you dont nip in the bud when they are young, or if you as an adult speak like that, your children will emulate you.

  6. I have to agree with you. Nothing worse than (good?) wrong pronunciation or spelling. On the other hand... I can get away with most things, because I am a foreigner. :)
