Accent

Thick accents kill me: Do you have something on the Mormon, Joseph Smeet?

Since I know nothing about Mormons, I look for Smeet, when I should have typed Smith.

I've done that before. It's awesome. What's even more fun is when you unintentionally repeat "Smeet?" back to them. "No! SMEET!" "Smeet?" "no!" Sometimes I resort to pen & paper.

ahh the pen and paper method. i love it. it's amusing when you get the paper back and what they want is so obvious are not sure how you didnt get it the first time.
