The Accentist

Note: This is NOT about ma lupp Fadiosis (hello there :p).

So the other day, I was having the time of my life (LOL) when I received a call asking about who is our GM. And then she asked me to spell it...

Me:  Raj Koothrappali* ... Raj - R-A-J..
Her (butting-in):  Please spell it.
Me (annoyed):  What do you think I am doing?
Her (talking "smartly"): No, you know spell like Roger Apple...
Me (ufff.. roger apple?! LOL): Okay. Raj - Romeo-Alpha-Juliet .. Koothrappali - Kilo-Oscar-Oscar-Tango-Hotel-Romeo-Alpha-Papa-Papa-Alpha-Lima-India. Got it? (*smirks*)
Her (lost?): Hmmm... yeahh.

Another phone conversation with an accountant.
Me: Blahblah of Mercury blahblah is on the line.
Him: What? Bakery?
Me: No. Mercury .. Mer-cu-ry.
Him: Ahhh. Mer KOO Ree.
Me:  *straight face*

* Changed the last name for security reason.

Something here is photoshopping the truth... LOL

I am so confused I don't know what to believe ...

the weighing scale at home -it says I'm 45 kg (99 lbs) ?
Ikea's and Carrefour's weighing scales -they say I'm 49 kg (108 lbs) ?

For the record, it's my "heaviest" weight, don't freak out I stand 5'2" only. And I think I really am gaining weight, my jeans are telling me so. LOL. Last January I was weighing 40.6 kg only (89 lbs) and last May I was 44.9 kg (98.78 lbs).

"No, it's okay, lie to me. Well that's alright because I love the way you lie. I love the way you lie." (- that's me talking to the weighing scale at home because I dont want to go beyond 50kg.. hahaha)

Burner Dates

Yesterday, some random Arab guy came to our office... 
Me:  You're from what company, sir?
Him:  Burner Dates
Me:  I'm sorry?
Him:  Burner Dates
Me thinks something is wrong:   Could you spell it out for me please?
(But instead of him spelling it out, he pronounced it very slowly.)
Him:  Bee - You - Ner Dates
Me:  Ahh, Pioneer Dates. *grins*
P.S. Just like some (or most :p) Filipinos having difficulty pronouncing "F" and "P", lots of Arabs are having trouble pronouncing "P" and "B" because Arabic only has the "B" sound and "P" is not familiar to them.
