To make DD say ask over and over?

After years of using the word ask she has started to say axe. It irratates me (although I'm not sure why) that she has come in saying " I need to axe you something" so I subjected her to a rather lengthy account of the axe and its uses throughout history. What is wrong with young people being seemingly unable to say ASK?

Baby your DD may be neither a Londoner nor from the Caribbean but she is cool with her talk, bro.
As for why you would announce your sandwich-related plans on Facebook, well indeed. We are kept informed of every tiny detail of her life with updates every 5 mins or so. confused

She is fairly popular smile

I cannot stand people who live their life through Facebook.

'It is vitally important to be a complete PITA pedant with teenagers, so they have something nice and easy and harmless to rebel against.'

bugger... mum did this... and I have only just realised... 30 years later.

Aksed (it's more like that than axe around here) drives me fucking crazy... between that, and the usual teacher-pedant's classic of "can I borrow a bit of paper"... "no you may HAVE a bit of paper but borrowing means you'll be giving it back when you're finished with it" I've got material to nag the two daughters with for a good few years!

Oh and "mom-maaaah" for grandmother around here does my head in as well.

sugar DH can't say "thr"

It drives me nuts but he's a well-regarded professional. It hasn't held him back grin and if he could say it, he would because he is aware of it. He just can't make the sound sad

Cannot stand axe, reminds me of the Rikky Lake show all these years ago! I LOVE MamaTJ method to sort the problem out!grin.
Another one I hear a lot in school is "Can I go toilet?" I really have to work on my inner peace not to scream "TO the toilet!"

MrsDeVere, I am in the North West and although I do have a very loud voice, not sure it will reach all the way to your DC!grin
