It’s no good to make fun of people when they mispronounce things. It’s the bad English karma, you know, where you end up mispronouncing something the same way as the person you’ve made fun of.
I’m talking about when people say, ‘that’s mean‘, in this context:
“This thing is very complicated. That’s mean I find it very difficult to do”.
Get what I mean?
Yes? Well, then, that’s mean you are very clever.
Today, I was told to make a reservation at the Marmalade Kitchen, so I laughed and said, ‘Marmalade Pantry’ lah, before calling up Marmalade Pantry and asking if it was the Marmalade Kitchen.
That’s mean I was laughed at right back.
