Have you ever had someone tell you a story using slang that made you feel dumb afterwards?

I had a woman I worked with telling me a story and it ended up with her being left where they were at because she said her friend  was thirsty. Which confused the heck out of me until she told me thirsty was another word for horny!

  • no, but i usually feel dumb for listening to slang, lol.

    If i were hearing the story you hear, i probably would have made a smart ass comment to her use of slang. I can't stand slang.

  • no, slang never makes me feel stupid. if anything, it makes me feel superior, for using proper language and grammar.

  • No, I just ask them what they mean. Usually when people do that, they do it because they are trying to showthat they know something you don't, but it usually just ends up showing them up.
