Same thread— also don’t make fun of people with foreign accents. That means they know at least 2 languages and English as a second language most likely. Thus, still learning.


“You thought I was an idiot, but it was all just a fack-aid!”


It’s actually highly likely they learned it from someone else who was also pronouncing it wrong.


This seems to be a pointless exception. Never make fun of people unless they don’t mind it.
