    I'm kind of a grammar Nazi. I hate when people butcher the language. I asked a tech of ours to set up an appointment for a sleep study. So she calls right away.

    "Hello. Yes I was axed to call y'all because I finna need a sleep study did.... ya I need it did on Apr 6th."

    There was more, but I had enough, so I took the phone and concluded the call in English.

    After the call is where my trouble began.

    I took her aside and said "listen, when you talk to these people on the phone be more professional. Use proper English."

    No problem right?

    Here's the line the got me and I swear I didn't even mean it lije that or think about what I was going to say.

    I said "Come on. At least try to act like a proper human being. " :jj:

    As soon as I said it I knew it was a problem.

    Almost got fired, but because of my outstanding record, they're making me take a sensitivity class :jj:

    Did you type @Chriza cause this dummy you are describing should be preparing a meal in a fast food joint somewhere?

    I brought up the whole "axed" thing in a thread the other day and a bunch of people got offended. I don't understand....it's not that hard of a word to say. Is it really just generation after generation mispronouncing the word?

    When you go for the training I would only talk to them in jive talk like from the 70s. Then they won't see you as a problem and let you out early .

    I bet if she was a White hillbilly, instead of sending you to "sensitivity class", they'd send her to "English class".

    You might not have gotten fired but don't worry a civil lawsuit is on the way. Some ACLU lawyers will be contacting you shortly.

    Not the clip I wanted, but the term "axe" is used to funny effect in this movie.
