It bothers me a lot when I hear people pronouncing names/things/food stuffs wrong. I try my best to pronounce peoples names right, it takes a minimal amount of effort to avoid annoying people or insulting them by continuing to say things incorrectly once you know how it’s supposed to be said.
I get it, you’ve never heard it said properly, fine, you get a free pass. But, I’ve now informed you how to say it properly - but you tell me that you don’t care and you’ll keep saying it the way you normally say it.
In what other areas of life would this be considered good practice?
Why is it when it comes to White British people we find it impossible to change something about ourselves as simple as pronouncing a name correctly? Ignorance is one thing, but the arrogance to continue doing something incorrectly is completely mind boggling to me.
But me informing you of this makes me ”judgmental” and that I’m insulting you by telling you that you’re doing something wrong. just, wow.
