Fly Magic: MVIS
Or, you could search moneyskater's blog for references to Grant.
I used to have customer from Germany who had really broken english. After every statement he would end it with word NO. This is a great area of Town NO. We have great parking they should come to my restaurant NO.
I love talking that way but my wife now forbids it. Odd No
But in literal terms he is asking a question.
"Odd yes or no?" he's leaving out the yes.
In spanish when someone asks a question, at the end of a sentence it is ended with "verdad" which means truth. Many spanish speaking people use the word "no" at the end of a question when they speak english.
"Am I right" Like --Joey needs to get out of the house and finish his education--Am I Right..
Or-They reported great numbers the stock should be higher.. Am I Right.
Say instead: "Odd, yes?" Or "Odd, right?"
In each case you are seeking affirmation of oddness.
Down here where I live now they say:
"Purty phukked, hmm?"
