And the FML here is that you didn't get to go on the museum tour? You sound like a 6-year-old who didn't get dessert because you misbehaved. Honestly. How is lisping even that amusing in the first place? And even if it is, try to control yourself and be just a little more sensitive to people with problems. She face up to her minor disability every morning because she has the competencies to do the guided tours, and you ridicule her for it. Fuck HER life, not yours.

Wow, OP! That is awful! Why would you do that? She was probably already self conscious, and you made it worse. Grow up.

OP: You're mean. I hope you're real proud of yourself. 1: You're an idiot for thinking it's funny. What a couple of losers you people are!

101: You can say that because you aren't the poor girl with the lisp. Unless you have an obvious and embarrassing defect, you cannot possibly understand how the tour guide feels. So good fo

How the fuck do you "accidentally" pronounce a word with a lisp when you yourself don't have a speech impediment?? You fucktard.

I have a lisp and don't find this offensive. My job involves me speaking and giving directions to operate certain computers and I've had tons of people copy and/or mention my lisp. Lisps are quite common now. To all the people saying the person should not have taken this job because he/she has a lisp... that's quite rude. He/she is still understandable and can choose any job they desire. People shouldn't make fun of lisps nor deny people who do have them the right to a certain job, but people

If the tour guide hadn't heard OP speak untill then OP could of pretended they had a lisp for the rest of the tour to not offend the tour guide..

OP isn't an asshole. You see, some people have thoughts. They can't just block out thoughts either. She thought it was a little funny sounding and said it on ACCIDENT, she didn't try to say it like that though :l

I have a really slight lisp and people demand I say words like seance, smosh and science. I'm used to it now but it still hurts for people to make fun of it. I've even had teachers ask me to :( but I know what op means when they say accidentally because when people make fun me to I start talking in a heavier lisp same goes for when lisps are mentioned. op I feel your pain

Apparently neither can you. The OP said "so i tried my best not to laugh". That makes it quite clear the that the OP found it funny. How is a lisp funny? Or rather, how is a lisp funny to anyone over the age of 12. Maybe the OP is 12, in that case, forgiven.

218 so are jackasses who think they're so superior making others feel like crap about themselves. If that was sarcasm, then ignore this.

203 It's not like she found it funny on purpose. Sometimes you can't help what makes you laugh. OP was trying not to laugh, so she did realize it would not be appropriate to do so. As for what she said at the end, she didn't mean to. It was a slip. Obviously she's not proud of it if she put it on FML.

Um, well no effence but you shouldn't laugh at something other people can't control. also what does OP mean and what does YDI mean? Can someone tell me all the abreeviations on this sight...?

Today, I was taking this sweet art tour, but some asshole had to make fun of the guide, so the guide ended the tour. FML.

84 - I lol'd at both your post and picture. 115 - No offense, but you need to work on your effencpelling. Don't freak out at OP guys, it was just a Freudian thwip...

Some times you can't help but make a joke. I had a speech impediment for years, but I worked hard and can now speak Spanish, French and English. You can't give that tour guide a pity party for having a lisp. ;)

Not really insensitive. If I listen to accents for periods of time I slip into them when I speak. Don't mean to it just happens.

I know someone that has a "sh" lisp and when I commented on this fml it wasn't edited to say the "th" in it so I didn't know which one it was

Reply

@ #44 Lisp can refer to any distortion of "s" - making a "th", a "slushy" /s/ from air escaping over the sides of the tongue, or (like sean connery does) a distortion caused by the tongue touching too far back on the palate.

How cool that you are all speech therapists and know all the rules as to what constitutes a lisp. I'm so impressed. Too bad you can't agree. I would imagine there are many different lisps. No two people are exactly alike so I doubt there is one clear definition. Besides, all speech impediments are articulation problems. derrrr...

Reply

Well, if you want to get technical, speech therapists generally don't use the term "lisp" since it's not specific enough to accurately describe someone's error because people can interpret the term differently (as seen in the different comments above). Plus, what's wrong with having a debate about the subject? Isn't that part of the point of comments?

@124 that's called lateralization, not a lisp. wikipedia must have lied to you I'm in grad school to be a speech language pathologist thanks

Reply

@157 actually next year I will be a speech pathologist, just need to finish my clinical year

Reply

@214 I was actually going from memory from an admittedly brief discussion on the term in an undergraduate class (I am also currently in grad school for speech language pathology), and it might just depend on who you talk to. I will concede the fact that perhaps today's convention is to use "lisp" to refer to only the interdental/s/, but it's a old term and it seems it was acceptable to use it to describe both the lateral and interdental forms. Here's a non-wiki source with the term i

I agree I have a lisp irl and I hardly ever notice it so to be rude and do that I would of slapped that op and end the tour then kick that person out

Reply

I agree that it was rude and immature. however, OP said it was an accident, hopefully this is true and they truly feel sorry for what they did. also, has anyone thought maybe it was a little strange that someone with an obvious speech impediment would choose a job that involves public speaking? the tour guide should have chosen a job more suited to her talents that didn't involve public speaking. that way incidences like this one wouldn't occur. ( FYI I'm not saying people with disabilities/ imp
