Things you like saying wrong


#1

big fan of saying i borrowed somebody something or asking if they can borrow me something

what about you?

oh text, obviously


#2

practically all of it


#3

Always wind up the TV by calling it Mataland.

Bonus: it winds up her mum too.


#4

I pronounce it “fah-jiy-tahs” so often at home that it’s only a matter of time before I blurt it out in public.


#5

eurgh - like how I always used to deliberately say “kest la vee” instead of c’est la vie (because I am hilarious) and then this girl corrected me and I felt like such a cunt.

cringing now just thinking about it.

don’t say stuff wrong on purpose kids because sooner or later you’ll just look like an idiot.

that certainly learned me a lesson.


#6

Apparently I say place names wrong. Like I pronounce Bournemouth: ‘Bourne-mouth’ and not ‘Burnmuth’ and I say shire and not share. Not sorry.


#7

bohn-muhf


#8

ed-in-berg


#9

My mum has called it Matt Alan for as long as I can remember.


#10

We call avocados, ava-ca-doo. Regularly forget myself when ordering stuff like “can I have the ava-ca-doo on toast please?” and they’re like what


#11

bet you itch an itch


#12

Possibly a reference to how it was named?


#13

WTF is it named after a man called Matt Alan?


#14

I think the guy who started it has two sons called Matt and Alan


#15

no way


#16

I like to call americanos ah-muh-RICK-uh-no. Feels good, nicer rhythm to it


#17

Housemate and I correctly pronounce the d at the end of DEMOND.


#18

Housemate calls them advocados, deliberately.


#19

Ah shit, he debunked it. What I always thought though

"There’s no meaning to the name Matalan whatsoever,” he says, quipping that if he had a pound for everyone who’d asked him what it stood for, he’d be a very rich man indeed. “I’ve been told that it’s my two sons Matt and Alan, but it’s definitely not.”
