    This drives me crazy.....

    I don't have a speech impediment, in fact, I like to think I speak quite eloquently (even if I do have a slight southern twang) and pronounce things correctly. But WHY OH WHY OH WHY do my hosts/guests call it a TRUFFLE BOWL and not a Trifle Bowl? Even in writing they do it!!

    Can't say I know what to tell ya. I cringe when I see people spell it "triffle."

    I'm with you!! When they say "truffle bowl" I immediately start thinking chocolate candies or little piggies foraging in forests.

    You know, that gives me a good idea for a chocolate truffle trifle.

    As I am making my TRIFLE.. I always say... Now there is a difference between a Trifle and a Truffle. A truffle is a small chocolate candy or a fancy mushroom.. a TRIFLE is a layered dessert.

    Some people just don't know! And I'm always looking to teach my customers something new at a show. It is a pet peeve of mine, also though :)


    Hehehe, a Chocolate Truffle Trifle! Now THAT would confuse them! Love it!

    But even if I didn't know what a truffle or a trifle was, if I heard someone call it "Trifle", I'd be repeating that and not making up my own pronunciation!

    That's their problem! They've refused to recognize me as the source of culinary authority.

    Perhaps its the hot curlers in your hair and bedazzled wedgies that drag your image down to "fast food" patron?

    you two have me in stitches!! ya'll are too funny.
    Keith - this has me literally laughing out loud, b/c it drives me insane as well, and I don't get it at all.
    Charity - I love your explanation, I bet addressing it that way does help with clarification.

    Glad you liked it! I started it because I emailed a host asking if she wanted to do the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup TRIFLE for dessert and she responds, "Great! Plus, it'll show off the Truffle Bowl!"

    I suppose that's along the same vein as people who respond to emails I send and address me as Nora. Not only is my name in my signature, but it is a part of my email address as well. As if I don't know how to spell it right...

    People don't listen or read. They just don't. Those of us who do are a small minority. I've given up trying to correct people when they mispronounce or misspell things.

    Exactly. It's like my dad who stills calls them Soo Doo Koo puzzles. We've corrected him a million times and he solves them ALL the time, you'd think he'd get it right by now. And the whole SanTOkU vs. SanTUkO knife thing. :cool:

    True - so true.


    However, can I just mention my other pet peeve besides the whole Trifle/Truffle deal?

    When people are hesitant about something and they say they are weary of it.

    DRIVES ME CRAZY!

    Weary means you're tired.

    WARY means you have hesitation...unless they mean that they are LEERY of it...which would mean being cautious of it.


    Okay, whoosh - glad I got that off my chest.:eek:

    My pet peave is putting the ' in front of all s. Like cat's or dog's or you get the picture. Where did this ever make sense? As a fourth grade teacher, I have to reset their minds to understanding this isn't correct. I'm like Monk, I want to change all the signs in town or let them know when they have made this mistake. "Breakfast's only $3.00" Ugggh. It drives me nuts!

    Yes, my son's teacher sent home a note with "there" instead of "their"(In 2 places!)....I had to think hard, and restrain myself from sending it back to her marked in red ink.

    Ooo! Ooo!, I have pet peeve (actually, I have so many, I can hardly call them 'pets') -

    "I hope my team won't loose the game, tonight." Really, is it possible the game will become partially detached from its setting?

    The people that say "TRUFFLE" are the same people that say PUNkin for puMPkin (that makes me grind my teeth) and then they later say..Can I Axe (aks) you a question? I reply with "No but you ask ASK me a question" (yes I do say that b/c it drives me so insane). And for the people of Boston - it is an idea that you have, not an idear...no "R" people! And you don't put clothes in a dresser draw - its a drawer (like drore that rhymes with bore).

    I live in a part of NE Pennsylvania that thinks they have their own language. There's even clips on youtube about it - Haynabonics ... Where they say "a couple two tree things like, d'jeet yet? no jew? no but i gotta go up da eynon to da ack-a-me and then stop at the 'beer garden' (beer store) before i go to the corpse house (funeral home) where so and so is 'laid out' (how morbid that sounds). But I gotta get a shirt with buh-huns first. Hayna or no?" And yes - that is from Scranton - home of 'The Office'.

    Ok I'll shush...

    You need to read the book Eats, Shoots, and Leaves. It's great and comes with a correction kit so you can correct the signs you see in your community. :D

    One that drives me INSANE, especially on FB, is that people cannot spell definitely.
    So many people put an A in it somewhere and it makes me crazy!!.
    It's not even that hard, just put an 'ly' at the end of DEFINITE.
    okay, I feel better now and sorry if I offended anyone :eek:

    Too funny Sarah! That is a huge pet peeve of mine. I mean, seriously, lose vs. loose - that is such a basic word - I'm surprised by the amount of people who use loose instead of lose.

    Something I'm seeing more often is people who can't (or just dont' want to) spell "probably" correctly, and just write "prolly." :eek:

    It's the curse of text messaging. I'll never be able to text message, because apparently it involves purposely misspelling words. I can't bring myself to do it.

    The turn this thread has taken is making me laugh.

    I was a church secretary for years. I didn't create the screens for the songs, but everyone assumed I did. One song in particular used the word grateful several times. A couple of people came to me on more than one occasion to tell me that grateful was misspelled. It wasn't, so I didn't worry about it. Finally the pastor came to me and told me to let my friend who did the screens know that grateful was misspelled on this particular song, and it was driving his wife crazy. I told him it wasn't misspelled. he said, "Yes it is. Grateful is spelled g-r-e-a-t-f-u-l."

    I said, "No, it isn't. Grateful does not come from the word great. It comes from gratitude." He was shocked.

    Still makes me chuckle.
