Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but I think most hoarders are simply just lazy. DH's parents are mega hoarders and it's like...just throw stuff out? And they say they WANT to get rid of stuff. They just never actually do it. Plus, they never clean or anything and I swear...I mean, I get that there is a psychological aspect to it too, but damn. When you have piles and piles of junk and paper and whatnot that is worth NOTHING, just throw the crap out! Half the problem is that DH's dad thinks all his crap is worth something to someone...who's gonna pay money for a rusted old set of tools or stacks of newspapers? SMH.

My and my partner are constantly arguing about how to pronounce stuff...we're both British, but he's older and uses a lot of pronunciation which seems to be going by the wayside. I always said "basil" the American way and it drives him up the wall, it's pretty funny. Although when I hear David Attenborough pronounce "sloth" it makes me want to start talking like a 90 year old English gent.

In response to a confession. I have an older relative who is very educated, intelligent, cultured and worldly (as are her parents). She's also very successful - has a degree from USC and makes six figures. There isn't any subject we can't have a substantial conversation about - art, literature, history, science, medicine, you name it. But oh boy, she can't spell, and pronounces some words completely incorrectly. She doesn't have any learning disabilities, either. This totally blows my mind.

My sister is dyslexic. She is also brilliant. Like seriously brilliant and wildly successful. But because of her dyslexia, she can't spell for shit. I, on the other hand, have always been an excellent speller and was the spelling police. Until I saw how her learning disabilities affected her, I never thought about what I was doing or that spelling wasn't as easy for everyone. Words that she sees everyday, she will still misspell. She literally can't see that it's incorrect. Needless to say, I no longer correct or judge people's spelling.

In response to a confession. If you say, "I don't care what color you are," you sound infinitely more uneducated and foolish than someone who mispronounces supposedly or library.

If any of you judgmental librarians say 'Erb or Cross-awnt, I'm coming for your heads!

Well, if nothing else I feel more educated today. I'm pretty isolated where I live diversity-wise. I didn't know what AAVE or code switching were and now I do. So this squabble has done some good!
