Drives me nuts, this country. When I was little, I was taught to sound out each letter. Put them altogether and you have a word. Only when you're in England, the motherland of English, it doesn't really work that way.

Me: "What do you mean you don't pronounce the 'w'? Why put it there if you don't want me to say it? It's South-Wark, not South-Ark!"
E&E: "No, it's Suth-Erk."
Me: "South-Erk?"
E&E: "sUth-Erk."
Me: "We're not coming here again, cause I don't know how to say it. And it's Green-Wich, not Gren-ich! It's like you don't say san-ich, it's sand-wich."
E&E: "That's san-wedge."
Me: "Aaargh!"

I should've told E&E to "Shu' eei" (shut it) *grin*
