    Since I can hear fine, I just realize they need to be told to speak clearly. No need to be too polite to idiots like that.

    People like that drive me nuts. You have to ask them to repeat themselves several times and they get ticked at you for not understanding them.

    I am used to folks using one or two words for an entire sentence, I am from Texas but even I didn’t get this one. I have heard “Jeet” used for Did You Eat?………funny.

    If someone has a hard time understanding, simply re-word the question or statement.

    I prefer to ask them if they speak the King’s English. If they don’t get it I’ll ask them to find someone who can. Next option; just leave.

    I lived for a while in the mountains of NC. The lunchtime mantra was this:
    Jeet yet?
    Nope
    Yontoo?
    Yup
    Sco!

    Jeff Foxworthy explained it all flawlessly:
    “Hey, jeet yeet?”
    “No, joo?”
    “Yontoo?”
    “A’ight.”
    And then Jeff said, “That’s a whole conversation, not one damn word!”

    I hate it when we live in an ENGLISH SPEAKING country but some shows (stupid ones at that) have to have sub titles to read because their English is so bad you can’t understand it. Plus they teach their kids how to talk??

    “I find that I have to Google a lot of tv commercials to read what they are saying.I usually try to avoid them but sometimes I can’t and it annoys me when I can’t understand what they are saying.”

    Simple solution: fast-forward.
    ‘fast forward’ and the mute button are my favorites.

    At Taco Bell:
    “Gimme 2 tacos”
    “You wanna hadamiso widdat?”
    (thinking: Hmmm Hadamiso, maybe a new Mexican dish)
    “What are you saying?”
    “You wanna hadamiso widdat?”
    Translation: You want hot or mild sauce with that?

    (From the G. Gordon Liddy radio show)

    Answer: “No! I speak American English with a local accent. Which word are you having trouble with?”

    But yeah, I do have trouble understanding people from other regions or cultures sometimes. It can be annoying.
