(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?”
