Were You By Chance Pronouncing It Wrong?

, , , , , | Working | February 2, 2022

My company sells blankets, and employees can buy them at a discounted price. I’ve decided to treat myself to one of the more expensive ones.

Coworker: “Ooh, that’s nice. Is it wool?”

Me: “No. I wouldn’t buy a wool blanket; I’m allergic.”

Coworker: “Are you sure? It looks like wool to me.”

Me: *Checks the label* “There we are: ‘100% Faux Wool.’”

Coworker: “You’re screwed, then. You’d better return it.”

Me: “Why?”

Coworker: “Because it’s wool, duh.”

Me: Faux wool.”

Coworker: “Exactly!”

I give up.

Me: “I’ll take my chances.”

Coworker: “Fine. Don’t complain to me when you get hives.”
