Is English her first language? It sounds like a lost-in-translation type of thing.

so yea, the finishing of the thoughts, that's its own thing. 


I figured that phrase was probably followed by some unsavory requests but I was being silly.  It's weird that someone would even think to use the word "may" (asking for permission) instead of the obvious "would", "could", or "will" as a directive.  That would wind me up too, but you probably don't want to bother correcting her either.  I guess if she wrote "May I have the McGuffin report, in triplicate, on my desk by 6:15 AM, tomorrow." it would be correct as a sort of passive/aggressive thing.

 
I knew you were being silly. silly.

I think that she has learned to not use the word "can" and is using "may." I just don't have it in me to correct her

That's all he writes, just those three words?  That would drive me crazy too; he should at least finish the thought.

Pueblo, Colorado. Pretty much anyone will pronounce this as pwebblo, you know, the spanish word for town.  Unless you happen to be from the area around Pueblo.  Then, you pronounce it pyebblo or pyabblo.  I don't know.

 
The Souris River in Manitoba where they pronounce it "souris" instead of francophone "souri".  Until it crosses the border into North Dakota where they pronounce it "mouse."

"Pundit" pronounced as "pundent" is one I've been hearing a lot of lately, especially from many broadcast and/or internet pundits.

However, if you're in an epic rock band and build a song around it, well......I'll look the other way.
