Speaking poorly AlannaDawn - 09/04/2004 11:03:51 AM

Seriously. I am so annoyed. I just attended a deposition where the expert witness for the other side was the biggest spluttering moron. I told my boss of my incredulity that this fellow had been selected as the witness, and he said, he was not stupid, but just a southerner. (From Atlanta). Now, being from Texas myself, I know we Southerners are not dumb... SO LET'S not SOUND DUMB!!!! Seriously. I thought if he said PACIFICALLY when be meant specifically ONE MORE TIME I would strangle him. I think I showed remarkable restraint in NOT killing him. There were too many witnesses. *grumble*

If you are a southerner, like me, have some respect. Try not to sound silly. Please.

Edit: I did not mean to offend anyone. But I seriously hate when people use the wrong word. *I* did not say this fellow sounded dumb because he was a Southerner, my boss did. I think he just spluttered a lot. But my boss said EVERYONE in Atlanta said pacifically instead of specifically. So I asked.

Hopefully with this edit, less people will be offended. That was not my intention. I truly apologize if you were offended.
