Latino Coworkers Don't Realize Woman Can Understand Their Nasty Gossiping

Knowing multiple languages is useful for a multitude of reasons. It can help you get into college, opens you up to more opportunities, and it allows you to catch people in the act when they're talking sh*t about you. It's amazing how quickly people assume, based solely on how somebody looks, whether they can speak a certain language. It's incredibly embarrassing for them, but they deserve to be called tf out.

Insecure Mother Refuses To Let Her Kids Speak English Because She Never Learned It

Most people would be thrilled to have their children speak multiple languages. Being multi-lingual has so many developmental benefits. Plus, the world is becoming more and more connected, so language is a great way to benefit from globalization. But sometimes, people are too selfish to actually let their children succeed, and would rather hold them back from certain experiences because they didn't have the same opportunities growing up. Sounds harsh, but that's showbiz.

People Reveal What Accents They Find Sexy For No Reason

Accents are a part of life. We all have one, even though a lot of the time people from the US like to forget that there is such a thing as an American accent. It's embarrassing but a lot of us consider the way we speak to be neutral and anything else is considered a twang or whatever. It's probably because a lot of mainstream music is usually sung with an American accent (If it's in English of course), or because of the many famous American TV shows.

Surprisingly, the generic 'American Accent' is not on this Reddit list, but if you have something else, yours might be.

People Reveal Words Their Families Completely Made Up

When you spend too much time with people a lot starts to happen. You can predict their moods, memorize their sleep schedule, and of course, you develop some kind of a dialect that only becomes more and more abstract with time. Made-up words can definitely solidify a relationship. So, who do we spend the most time with growing up? Yep, our families. And some 'famiolects' just happen to go much farther than others.
