Coma resident Janice Wainwright mispronounced the word ‘character’ recently in front of her boss. Wainwright, who works at Speedy Tax, said she was told about the error by co-worker, Benji McKnight.
“I was mortified,” Wainwright said. “But to be honest, I had never heard the word pronounced out loud and I thought the C-H letters made the sound like they do in ‘cheese’ or ‘chop’.”
Wainwright said her boss, Denny Neighy, didn’t seem startled or disappointed by her error and didn’t appear to treat her different afterwards.
“I think I’m going to be okay,” she said. “How the hell are we supposed to know how all these words are pronounced anyway? Someone needs to invent a talking dictionary.”
