@Trashcanman not a book specific one, but this one always makes me laugh
#literarymeme #bookmeme

Trashcanman OMG yes! I have an co worker that says this. Drives me up the wall! He also calls Vinly records "vinyls" ugh... ? Thanks for playing. 1y
LibrarianRyan We had to have a speech lesson with a new intern. Had to be honest, if you can't say it right you cant work here. 1y
Slajaunie I have this conversation almost daily with students! This drives me nuts!!!😤 1y

wanderinglynn @LibrarianRyan Wow. A library intern, really? That is sad. 1y
wanderinglynn @Slajaunie I really try not to be too harsh. I grew up in a poor rural area and heard many a word mispronounced. It makes me think of Pygmalion/My Fair Lady. 1y
JoScho 😂😂😂 1y
Slajaunie @wanderinglynn I am not harsh because I teach elementary but after I correct them a few times I tell the we don‘t have any berries that lie. 🤣🤣🤣 1y
KathyWheeler I work in a library and have a college educated, very smart co-worker who says this. It drives me insane. 1y
daena Hahahaha. Awesome. 1y
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler okay, there‘s no excuse for that (save for a speech impediment). Has no one corrected him/her? Maybe just post this meme. 😉 1y
wanderinglynn @daena Samuel L. Jackson has spoken! 😉 1y
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn She‘s 61 and was raised in a rural area where this pronunciation is common. I don‘t think she‘s going to change it now. Weird thing is, she says “Interlibrary loan,” not “interliberry loan.” 1y
xicanti I want to be the kind of person who doesn't mind when people say lie-berry, but I ain't there yet. 1y
wanderinglynn @xicanti I don‘t think I ever will be. 1y
