Parvin-isms
The doctor I work for is Persian, she moved here when she was 16. Even after all of these years of living in the U.S., her grasp of slang English is still weak. Here are a few of her better flubs throughout the years: "I'm glad that was over, it was about to eat me out." She still seems to confuse up, out, in... One very small word, one big difference in meaning. On the phone to another doctor, "I'll go down on him for $50.00" She meant to say, I give him $50.00 off. The best part was trying to explain to her what "go down on" meant.
