I Need a Mother F***in' Bambulance!

Monday and Tuesday I did my Workplace First Aid/CPR re-certification course. Got 100% because I'm awesome. Or it could have been that it was the same test as the first time I did the course, it was open-book (I only looked once, seriously) and the person before me circled the answers on the questionnaire.

I really enjoy this kind of stuff so I found the course very interesting but apparently not everyone feels the same. The girl across from me fell asleep no less than 4 times the first day...

Anyway.... My instructor was a very knowledgeable teacher and I would trust my life to her in the event of an emergency. However, she had a way about pronouncing things that by noon on the first day I felt I needed to record.

Resuscitate - Resuciate
Flail Chest - Frail Chest
Acronym - Acromum
Placebo - Paceblo
Osteoporosis - Osteosporosis
WHMIS (pronounced whi-mis) - WHMSIS (whim-sis)
Frustrating - Fustrating (one of my biggest pet peeves, along with libary and exscape)
Respiratory - Respitatory and Respitory

Love it! I had a co-worker who had problems with several words. My friend and I kept a list similar to yours. That was 12 years ago and I still have the list. Even more amusing is that my friend that I kept the list with can't say "birthday"... to her it's a "birfday".

Congrats on your kick-ass mark. :)

What is up with that anyway?

Now I'm not perfect and I know I set closet wrong all the time and asked is a word I hurry up and say way too fast.

But libary, proly? My father his entire life has said immedaley (immediately).

I chose to correct him one time when I was half way to the neighbours house and he yelled get back immedaley! I said "no! and its IMMEDIATELY", needless to say that resulted in him coming after me, I was in the fetal position, had a sore ass and steered clear of him for weeks. I think I was like 8?

So I never say anything to anyone about words, I just smile and say "oh yes". :)

I think it's got something to do with people learning different languages in different parts of the province? My MIL says "Poplar" (the tree) for popular
