I'm done. You're not seeing the boys ever. DH agrees with me, and even if he didn't, I don't care.

You take the tiniest incidents and then cuss out and threaten us for being "bad" parents.

Every single thing you've confronted us about is quite frankly laughable. If you actually parented your own kids instead of whoring around while they went hungry you'd know that.

I barely tolerated you out of respect before. But no more. I've had enough.

And if you have a problem with me, then say it to my face. Your a grown man, not a child. Actually knowing how sexist you are, it's rather funny you're too scared to confront me.

ETA: You're lucky DH is keeping a cool head. If he hadn't taken the phone away from me, then you'd know my wraith right now.

I don't wanna get all Grammar Nazi on you, but I'm totally picturing you sending a ring wraith from LOTR after whoever was bothering you.

I'll find one and sic them on em! He's a total *******, I'm sure they'd find him quite tasty.

I didn't think that looked right, but I was so pissed I didn't care.

Default Oh for the love of Pete!

It's THE OLIVE GARDEN. Who gives a flying fig that one of your "uneducated" coworkers actually ordered manicotti instead of mani-coat. Speaking in the office later in conspiratorial whispers about how embarrassing it was to you just makes you look like an idiot.

LOL!
Besides, "manicotti" is an English word now, with its own English pronunciation. I hope she acts similarly freaked out whenever someone "mispronounces" a word borrowed from French.

It's not even mani-coat in Italian. It's mani-coati.

And yeah, most Italian words don't sound Italian in English. Pizza, spaghetti, and cappuccino kept their sounds, but many others didn't.

I had a hard time after I moved back from Italy and I kept "mispronouncing" marinara. I kept saying it the Italian way, and people kept correcting me.

Same thing happened to me after I took a class in Chinese art history.

Excuse me, but she used to live in NYC so I'm pretty sure she knows everything about this subject.

As to the pronunciation, it is my understanding that this is a regional thing and in some parts of Italy they do drop the last vowel. Frankly, I think most of her linguistics actually comes from watching reruns of The Sopranos or Rocky movies.

Well, some in the south do drop the last e on words, and we hear it today in words like panettone or calzone where the "one" sounds like the English word tone instead of toe-nay.

But, the drop sounds more soft over there as opposed to over here. I can't really describe it well, but I hear the difference between a southern Italian and an American just ignoring the e.

But, hey, if she wants to get all snooty about "proper" Italian, then she should speak "proper" Italian.

I can't bring myself to say calzone and panettone the Italian way, though I know it. I think it just sounds silly when you live here and aren't actually Italian. But it is certainly manicoati!
