Today, at the age of 27, I learnt that your tonsils aren't the dangly bit at the back of your throat. I work in healthcare. FML

Didn't you ever see Monster House? That's totally where I learned about the uvula from!

This is why they call what doctors do, "practice".

I saw that movie too! It was a great one, had a gripping, in-depth and emotional story :D

I learned about the Uvula from Jimmy Neutron.

That's exactly what I just thought too.

:- Doesn't it just feel awful when you try to correct someone, but have no idea what you're talking about? I have no idea, since... I can read.

Looks like you learned something new today, 4.

Funny thing about that is America actually speaks proper English. What you are calling the Queen's English is a dialect created by the aristocracy in the late 19th century to set themselves apart while the Queen at the time disapproved.

Both are acceptable. Same with "spelt" and "spelled".

#15 Doesn't it feel awful when you try to make a sarcastic remark to make someone feel bad, only to discover that nobody likes it? I wouldn't know, since... I'm not an a**

#21, good job showing that you only need to SOUND like you know what you're talking about, in order to get a bunch of upvotes for talking complete bullshit.

#39 Yeah you are cause you commented a sarcastic remark about a sarcastic remark........... nice try idiot.

Since op is from the states she did in fact use it improperly

Not true. Since when is Bath and North East Somerset in the US, anyway?

Where's the "you deserve it"? (For working in something that probably required anatomy classes at least)

I have the iOS app & this one comes up with FYL & YDI as the options for me, though not all do since the update.

I really hope your area of expertise is not in oral healthcare.

I hope OP is a receptionist.

Good thing you don't preform tonsillectomies (I hope).

By "work in healthcare," I hope you mean medical billing or something. Any doctor, nurse, PA, or even medical assistant should know what tonsils are.

Shit, I studied to be a pharmacy tech and learned that in anatomy.

My mother does medical billing and even she had to study anatomy...

It could be worse. You could be 40 and a licensed physician.
