This is a hoot.... sad, because it is TRUE..... but a hoot!!!! By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND "TENJOOBERRYMUDS"...

In order to continue getting-by in America (our home land), we all need to learn the NEW English language! Practice by reading the following conversation until you are able to understand the term "TENJOOBERRYMUDS".

With a little patience, you'll be able to fit right in.Now, here goes...The following is a telephone exchange between maybe you as a hotel guest and call room-service somewhere in the good old U S A today.....

Room Service: "Morrin. Roon sirbees."

Guest: "Sorry, I thought I dialed room-service."

Room Service: " Rye . Roon sirbees...morrin! Joowish to oddor sunteen???"

Guest: "Uh..... Yes, I'd like to order bacon and eggs."

Room Service: "Ow July den?"

Been there too... many times with employees.

It is amazing how many times my employees want to "AXE" me a question. Not too keen on employees axing me - they aren't the sharpest tools at Harbor Freight.

And whatever happened to the King's English? We have a bunch of inarticulate, gum-slapping, toothless wonders teaching language arts! I need an Ibuprofin!

Sloppy speech abounds. Utah county-ites have created their own brand of "what's-that-you-say?"-pronunciation: Ah-doan-fill-good. How-jew-fill-bout-thaa? You-gunna-pill-it? Get-rill! Wassa-dill-wi-thaa? Doan-fergitta-sill-it.

...And those are the educated ones.... LOL

What's really [rilly] sad is, the longer we live here, the more we sound just like everybody else!

Drives me nuts.

Sometimes I catch myself sounding like an idiot.
