    Changing The World, Two Letters At A Time

    | Calgary, AB, Canada |

    (I’m a customer at a restaurant and overhear this conversation between another customer and the waitress.)

    Customer, to waitress: “Can you tell me how long it is from here to Bah-nah-f-f?

    Waitress: “I think you mean Banff, sir.”

    Customer: “No, Bah-nah-f-f.”

    Waitress: “There is no city or town by that name in Alberta.”

    (The customer pulls out a map and points to Banff.)

    Customer: “Yeah there is, right here. BAH-NAH-F-F!”

    Waitress: “That’s pronounced Banff, sir.”

    Customer: “Nope, it’s pronounced BAH-NA-F-F!”

    Waitress: “Sir, I’ve lived in Alberta my entire life, and can assure you it’s pronounced Banff.”

    Customer: “Well, that’s just stupid! When I get there, I’m changing the pronunciation.

    Waitress: “You’re gonna go to Banff and just change the pronunciation of the name?”

    Customer: “Yes!”
