Wait. I’ve been pronouncing His name wrong all along? Well fuck.

Not really. The names we know best have been Latinsed and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Greek pronunciation just stresses other vowels.

Deh-met-ter, for example.

I was reading The Bacchae of Euripides for drama and at the back there was the pronunciations of the Greek gods and goddesses and I just…..

Zeus is apparently pronounced Zyoos. ZYOOS. HOW?

Because the name has Indo-European roots in the word ‘dyeus’.

'Dios' in Greek and that doesn't rely on English pronunciations.

Accurate post is accurate.

Reminds me of the time a lady told me whip doesn’t melt. Or a guy yelled at me for not understanding him/hearing him because he kept talking on the phone


For those in retail.

I worked in a Lil Caesars and a woman came in and wanted a sausage pizza with no sausage, but got mad when she was given a cheese pizza.

So when I worked at fitting room in Old Navy, a woman told me that a medium top was too small, and that the large top was too large. So she asked me to find her an “x-medium”. Old Navy carries x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, 1x, 2x and 3x. There is no “x-medium”. But she insisted, so I went and found her an “x-medium” (which was just a medium in a different color but the same top, same make, same EVERYTHING) and she goes very happily, “THIS! THIS FITS ME PERFECTLY! THANK YOU SO MUCH! See, you can do anything you can set your mind to!”

I’m a waitress at a big fancy resort, and once a woman asked me for a diet water and when I told her there was no such thing she demanded to see my manager (who then also promptly told her there was no such thing and brought her regular water).
Another occasion of stupidity occurred when a woman had been brought a steak cooked too much for her liking. I offered to take it back and bring her out a new one, cooked a little less, and she said “NO this one’s fine I just want you to cook THIS one a little less.” I then had to get the chef and have him explain why you can’t UNCOOK a steak.

When I was working at dunkin donuts there was this woman in the drive-thru who asked for a lightly toasted croissant and then started complaining that the croissant was warm. And wanted her money back, so she gave me the croissant back and I gave her the money and then she tells me “now i want my new croissant” she wanted a new one for free and as she was screaming at me this guy in a biker gang covered in tattoos leans over the counter in the store and yells “ma’am let me just tell you what we’re all thinking. fuck off, you stupid ****.” I couldn’t stop laughing and she drove away in anger.

Most of the people like in the stories above know that they’re being totally irrational, but also know that if they complain enough they’ll most likely get something free or discounted. So really most of the the nonsensical fucks are actually just cheap fucks with no shame or respect for people.

That last bit of commentary though.

Well then…

Customer buys a £700/800 ring. Turns out it’s the wrong size. No problem. We can order in the size smaller/bigger but we have to return the one they have first.

"Can’t I keep this one while the other one arrives?"

You want to technically have both at the same time?

"This return pays for the one that’s coming…"

More to the point, where did my Xkit go?


Where have my tags gone?

Can you end up in the fields of punishment for killing your self?

We all end up in the same place. The Fields of Asphodel.

Tartaros is reserved for those who commit crimes against the gods.

The Elysian Fields are for Heroes.
