Frog spelling: worse than ours?

Don't know if you know Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science. It's worth perusing, and I especially liked this, from 30 Stories in 30 Days, about working in a chain bookstore:

6. A woman comes up to me. "R?" she asks.
I type it in: "R".
"R?" I ask helpfully, inviting the next letter.
She looks at the screen. "No no no no no. Rrrrrr," she says.
"Rrrrr," I type in.
"No no no no."
I give up. I hand her a pen and piece of paper. She writes, "Art." She's French.
I point to the Art section.

(The whole thing is available here.)


Oh boy. I love when you post, Curtis. Keep 'er up.
