It is clear i am a different specie when the waiter gives me a choice between Chicken and Coriander Soup and Spinach and Egg Soup, and whilst everybody else on the table opts for the safe chicken soup, i choose Spinach and Egg. And i am not even vegetarian.
On another tangent the waiter could not pronounce, “coriander” and he was unintentionally put on the spot when someone on the table corrected him ( unintentionally of course). However, in all this unintentional mess, i saw a slight change in the waiter’s expressions.
Why do i have such an urge to correct people’s pronunciations and grammar Clearly, the waiter was not well-educated and probably he did not have the same exposure as the folks sitting on our table did. Then why can’t we just sit and be polite?
No! I will never put some one on the spot unintentionally… at least i hope so.
