    Default *spin off* what mispronounced words drive you mad

    I spent a month travelling around Italy last year and the pronunciation of bruschetta varied between regions. The three pronunciations I encountered were bru-sketta, bru-shetta and bru-chetta (with a 'ch' sound like Charlie).

    In the end I just smiled and pointed at the item on the menu

There are lots of times when it is simply ...and I.
    See, I was taught its "would you like to come with Hannah and I?" and I cant think of a time when it would be 'xyz and me' ...now Im just more confused
