'Nevah' is what we say up here in Northern New England. Along with 'cah' for car, and 'deah' for deer. I'm not saying that you all have to speak like me; Just enlightening you. I realize it's not grammatically correct, and I talk like that to make fun of it. No harm done.

Where I live people use it all the time however usually only in person, texts, or Facebook and for other things use the correct spelling. However since this site is more similar to Facebook then writing an essay it was fine spelling (for where I live and I think in must teen slang)

68 - I'm from New England (CT at the moment, but born and raised in Boston - the world capital of replacing "R" with "H") and I still never hear people say it the way you spelled it. Your locality excuse falls flat.

#96 I'm from long island New York the world capital of replacing everything with an r (warter, idear) and I've heard many people both saying and writing neveh.

I'm from Boston, and even if r's aren't pronounced in some words, that doesn't mean we spell them like we say it. For example, if we pronounce car as cah, I don't write 'cah' on the internet or on paper

I went to Boston a few years ago and it was a blast. I laughed at them trying to say "go park the car" and they laughed at me for saying y'all. And apparently my southern accent is a lot worse than I originally thought. But I will never get over how damn cold it was. I like my "cold" winters to stay in the 40's. Never again will I go north of Dallas in February.

Damn Yankee teenagers...it's bad enough y'all talk funny, add the fact that people tend to spell weirdly on the Internet, do you really need to mess it up more? Is it really that hard to spell "never," instead of purposely misspelling the word and starting an Internet war over "nevah?"

I agree, A_TEEN has actually quite a few grammatical errors in his profile. He excessively uses comma splices which, as a grammatical nazi, he should realize are one if the most common mistakes.

A_Teen. You may now step down. You have been publicly shamed. Your profile is full of errors and yet you feel the need to insult others for their errors. For shame....

Same goes with Aussies or English people.. Our R's aren't very strong like Americans or Canadians. :) I have never noticed any Americans pronounce words without strong R's though.. sorry if that's offensive. I've only watched Boston legal/public, I asume they live there :p

There is this new thing called accents y'all should look into it. Idk how old most of y'all are but why r y'all fighting over someone spelling something wrong get over it and grow up. Y'all don't have be dicks over one missed spelt word.

I love how all this started after I spelled 'nevah' I'm born and raised in Maine not Boston, so it's not the same. But if it stops the emotional turmoil: NEVER* ...A_TEEN, are you stable now?

I think it's safe to assume A_TEEN has fallen into cardiac arrest and died. Let us hope his wannabe Grammar Nazi persona has died with him.

Haha, he changed his bio now after the comments saying it was grammatically incorrect!

Sorry, but there's almost always room in medicine for second guesses. Doctors aren't perfect, and we make mistakes. You don't want us making rash decisions without thinking things through. I get nervous before each and every operation I do. That nervousness keeps me on my toes and keeps me honest. The second I get complacent, I start making mistakes.

Wish more docs felt that way. I hate the I know it all types. Me and my sis have had a mystery illness for awhile. Her docs are the I know it all types. Mine aren't. Mine are trying treatments and I'm in better shape. Nervousness can be a good thing. As long as it doesn't psych a person out.

Ja, that's rubbish - I'm a doctor and I used to sweat bricks before big exams, my anxiety has improved since I qualified, and obviously I am much more confident in my competence, but I still get really nervous about whether I am doing the right thing for every patient I see, as doc bastard said, second guessing prevents complacency - second guessing myself convinces me that I have made the correct diagnosis and implemented the correct management, or it alerts me to the fact that I may need to consider other differentials...Cocky doctors who are too self-assured are doctors who end up making mistakes. Good luck OP - you are almost there :)

Crippling nervousness is not good, but the right amount make doctors better. (I hope, anyway...!) Under such pressurised situations, it's easy to make the mistake the OP did. I have such an exam coming up this week in fact, should really do some more studying rather than FML :-S

And you're probably a 40 y/o working class white suburban male trying to act "hip" or "cool". Anyways, I lol'd so hard at this, I'd hate to be OP. "How can I help you sir" "I'm not a guy *death stare*"

40, your an idiot. Guessing someones sex is not a judgment. "She" can do whatever she wants, but she can't get mad when someone sees a guy and assumes it's a guy.

#102 I'm not an idiot, again, by you putting quotation marks on she you are saying the she is not a she, therefore making a judgement or being rude. Never did I say op was judging or being rude. Get your facts straight and your grammar before you call someone out.

12: It says t-shirt, shorts, and short hair. Tons of women dress like this nowadays, and a girl is no less entitled to do so because she has more stereotypically masculine features (which is kinda bs anyway). On the other hand, getting mad over it would be stupid, because shit happens and some people are androgynous.

Reply

No 12, it doesn't work that way. A person can dress however the hell they want too. If I decided to wear leotards and high heels, I wouldn't want anyone to call me lady gaga, because I'm not. Freedom to express. Many Women have short hair, and can wear t shirt and shorts. Emma Watson, Vanessa hugdens, Ellen degenerous, ect

Nobody said women CAN'T dress like that. They just said that women who dress like that, and have a short haircut and moustache shouldn't get mad if they are mistaken for a man. And I agree. I would have have mistaken her for a man, and I think you would have too if you were in OP's position.

I don't have a problem with the fact that she was mistaken for a guy, because it happens (especially if the 'stache was prominent, though I imagine this is highly exaggerated); what's weirding me out are the people who are implying that there's something wrong with women wearing t-shirts and shorts, like that's not unisex casual wear.

Reply
  gabrielbaby  |  9

That's what I have a problem with too, then assuming she is gay/lesbian. Or transgender, ect. It's really annoying and rude. They had a 'stache, yes but everyone has hair. Everyone has hair there, not everyone waxes or shaves it. Obviously this person is sick, who really gives a shit what they look like if they don't feel good. When I'm sick I don't both to shave or dress properly, I'm worrying about getting healthy.

Well maybe if they don't want to be mistaken for men, they should shave the 'stache and their legs every now and then, and not dress like men. They shouldn't be offended if someone makes the mistake if they don't want to be feminine. There's nothing wrong with it, I'm just saying it's an easy mistake to make sometimes.
