Sarcasm would be reasonable, but then again, considering how much FML commenters love to call for break up/divorce over the most trivial bullshit, it could well be genuine.

Seriously? If you think this is what people divorce over I'd like to know what you think people should stay for...

I'm so bad with car models that this is something I just learned thanks to FML. Saving me from embarrassment if I ever have to use Hyundai in a conversation or when/if I try to get my own car. Thanks FML for saving a life

Well when one is mentioned, i automatically think of the other. I never heard of hyundai until years back and i honestly thought honda just changed their name. Seems silly but there can be worse mistakes

*says quietly* Different spelling too... Maybe he was thinking that Honda was American? And Hyundai foreign?

Both are Asian brands. Americans say "Hyundai" as "hoon-dye" instead of "hi-un-dye" so that could be what caused the confusion.

even still they're both imports. I'd actually be more ashamed if that's what he was thinking.

"Hyundai" is Japanese and is pronounced "Hyoon-dye" over there. Us Westerners tend to pronounce it "Hun-day."

Hyundai is Korean, my bad. I've no idea about Korean pronunciation. Sorry for wasting your time.

#59, Hyundai is indeed Korean. 현대 would be properly transliterated as Hyeondae or Hyundae. However, I have no English example to compare the pronunciation to.

Wow. And I thought my husband not being able to drive my stick shift was bad. No, that wasn't an innuendo.
