Is anyone else sensing a movement towards more mumbling in ghetto slang these days? There are some items that I want to pickup at a Walmart in the area, which very rarely goto (once every couple of months at most), and I wanted to find out when the store closes. Well, when the lady (I'm being very nice by using that word) answered the phone, I swear it sounded like this, "tangabalin walmah aarereamemeregista canihepyuh?" I swear, it was that shitty. She was too lazy to expend the energy to say the line that probably should have sounded like, "thank you for calling walmart, this is the X. How can I help you?" The image in my head of what this lady looked like was so vivid, I could probably pick her out of a police lineup. Given her mumbling, I wanted to make sure I asked a question that a simple number would answer: "What time do you close today?" answer: "5" *click...I hang up* I didn't want to hear any more of that voice or communicate any more past the answer I needed. It is sad really. Its sad enough that people don't pronounce words properly, which is understandable given how slang and dialect spreads. Slang or dialect doesn't really irritate me too much b/c it is human. But now people are adding mumbling into the mix? They are too lazy to even pronounce their slang? How much of this have you guys come across?
