Peeve of the Day

You know, besides adults who prey on children (see post below).

I hate it when people write "yah" for "yeah." The voice in my head pronounces them completely different. "Yah" is pronounced like the German "ja," which is "yes." Which I suppose means the same thing as "yeah," so technically it's okay to write it. But the majority of the people I know who write "yah" do not speak a word of German, and are meaning to write "yeah," which is what we say often here in America.

It just kills me to read "yah" knowing that the person thinks she/he is saying "yeah."

Because in my small, addled brain, they are most certainly not the same. Yeah!
