Excuse me Sir, but I didn't know that pronouncing the word Beer is a taboo.
I had some work with a company that imports Beer. So when discussing it with my boss, he was refering to it as Perrier the whole time. I kept on correcting him, but he was insisting. He wouldn't believe that it was Beer although he was holding the papers that spelled out the WORD BEER!
It's been three days now, and still refering to it as Perrier. So, I was gossiping about it with a colleague of mine who confessed that yes, he wouldn't say Beer either, because the word is considered a taboo! He was amazed at how brave I was saying the word out loud!
"Would ji3a be a better title?" I asked.
No! Because it made me the taboo girl now, Flamingoliya ji3a! as he desided to nickname me!
