Problematic language

Today, at my new retail job, I accidentally referred to white tank tops as, "Wife beaters." That's what I thought they were actually called, until my boss had to correct me. FML

I hope you didn't get in trouble, thats super common slang so I hope they understood.

Slang or not, anyone with half a brain should know there's a proper term for the shirt... sorry but YDI.

That’s what we call them here in Aust

Very common slang

If you're working a job in im guessing clothing retail, it doesn't look good for the company if their employee doesn't know what the proper name for the garment is.

I have literally never heard them referred to as anything other than a "Wifebeater" obviously depending on the audience I may just say a "white top" but it is a Wifebeater....

And what would that name be? I know there is one, but I’ve never heard it ever in my entire life. They’ve always been “wife bearers” or “white shirts.”
