I'll just toss out the stereotypical ones.
Any other name that looks like it's a random grab of letters out of a scrabble bag.
Just politely correct people wtf
So should I now sue my province for everyone who called me Gabriel instead of Gavriel?
Or a shampoo bottle.
There's a difference if people mispronounce it on accident or on purpose though. Usually the latter is done by overly aggressive high school sports coaches.
Those were sarcastic. People always claim "One time I ran into....insert one of those names. In reality it's not that hard to sound out a name. It's no worse than trying to pronounce Eastern European last names.
Ya. Or just ask people how to pronounce.
The only Key and Peele that I actually like.
Sigh. So many snowflakes, so few safe spaces.
Love that skit. It was shown to me by my brother, A-A-Ron (who is a high school teacher himself in L.A. and gets to deal with pronouncing names correctly every school year.)
I feel for the Polish. Probably one of the groups who suffer the worst from this type of "micro-aggression".
What do you mean? Kowalski is easy to pronounce.
They probably suffer micro-aggression every time they enter a nail salon.
Except the first name might be Przemysław.
as a teacher I would be f-cked. I can't even pronounce "three" differently than "tree".
That's when you just make it a joke. "What's up Coleslaw?"
What and actually have a cultural micro-exchange? Aggression is better, cause they should integrate by changing their names, religion, choice of clothing, diet and all that other stuff to enjoy America's "freedom".
I once had a Monyqqe convinced that her name was pronounced "Monet" (a-la painter).
Are you Quebecois?
Yeah I would say that as Monique.
Italian by birth, Texan by choice
I can pronounce Limoncello and especially the brand Buitoni (it's Boo-ee-toe-nee and NOT Be-you-toe-ney)
If only Ellis Island took immigrants in still. /sarcasm
"What's your last name?"
"I don't know how to spell that. It's Wilson from here on out."
