I don't like the way you talk

Why is it that no one in the pipeline community can pronounce Venezuela? I really don’t think it’s that hard of a word, but for 5 years I’ve been listening to people say Ven-zoo-ay-luh. It just really gets on my nerves.

These are the same people who say "nukulur" instead of nuclear...and "post morten" instead of post mordem...

I have the same problem, but I'm not sure who is correct. Does Yemen sound like yem-en or does it sound like yea-men?

Hmmm, Carrie....I don't know what's right, but I say the first one.

Since we've kept this going, I also don't like 'supposebly'. It's a D people! Not a B!

It's pic-ture that you take with a camera and you serve tea in a pit-cher.

And don't axe me any questions about that. I think I'll scream.
