Language

The Language that divides us

And when calling from Atlanta to California, that was a serious linguistic challenge.

The Atlanta operator was a sweet lil Southern Bell southern belle while the LA operator was there only because there was no surf that day but likely still wearing a pair of shorts and huaraches sandals.

Southern Belle: Tell'm to call foeofoe two nine two foeo foeo.

Surfer Dude: Saywha?

Southern Belle somewhat louder: Call foe o foe two nine two foe o foe o.

Surfer Dude: Saywha???

Southern Belle still louder and slower: Call foe o foe two nine two foe o foe o.

Surfer Dude: (Sound of a deep drag on a joint) Cool!

Never got the call back.
