I went to buy 3 bbq chickens and asked if I wanted to dine in or take out
i love this game,
I work in construction and have many years of experience when working with a young smart @ss i love to play Dumb.
Actually come to think of it my wife did ask me a ridiculous question the other day ,
she asked: are you hungry and do you want a beer ?
mmmmmmmmmmmmm Makes you think! What they are thinking ??
My wife usually rings me 2 or 3 times a day. To ask if I am OK?? ( I doubt it, more like to make sure, I am not at the local Sorry Sorry having a Beer or 2 ) Today, as it is constant rain in Junob, she said, Stay in doors. When she gets Home, I now that the first thing she will Say, is. Hmmmmmmm You did not clear the dog pooh or Sweep the leaves.
Geeze fellers, Even here, we can't, get it right.
My gf has been working to get her GED and we chat on Viber.
GF: "Diablo, i past my english test today!" (I'm known as Diablo in my house.)
Me: "Money well spent."
Without straying too much , I will add that they are lot more critical of our pronunciation in their lingo
than we are of them when they speak English
I know, right? It cracks me up that mine laughs at my English and calls me "slang".
Edit: Apparently I didn't understand your statement the first time around. Now I get it. So yeah, I gave up trying to learn from them their language. They are brutal with the laughing and put downs when trying to speak their language. What gets me, as I stated above, is that they even make fun of MY English. I have to remind my gf that American English (what they supposedly learn) is, in fact, my first language and I am most certainly a better speaker than they are.
You can only imagine them on the Aussie slang then , one mates wife turns up says , hows it goin mate , how are they hangin ,
of course my answer was bloody fantastic ,do you wanna check
I did prise out him that he had put her up to it
what they do is say it as it spelt , not necessarily as it should sound , may-or = mayor
Hmmm. My wife has three degrees. I still have to explain at least half of the movie endings that we watch….
