"Why silent letters used in English words when we just have to ignore them?" He went mum like a storm suddenly lost it's acceleration.

I stepped into cafeteria listening to Amit's self proclaimed high class English conversations. Since it was peak lunch time, I couldn't find another table to settle, placed myself in the same table were Amit and gang occupied.

To talk about Amit, he is our office grammar Nazi who considered to be best in English. Not just that, he uses it as a tool to defame, embarrass and harass many of our colleagues by correcting their grammar mistakes and accent issues publicly.

So here in the cafeteria too he was pointing out person by person that how their accent suck and and their email mistakes. I was keeping mum just like any introvert who seek calm atmosphere. However, from nowhere and to my surprise, he started targeting my Keralite accent.

I kept myself calm for a few moments, but when his words started hitting my patience, I asked him few logical questions.

"Why silent letters used in English words when we just have to ignore them?" He went mum like a storm suddenly lost it's acceleration.

I continued with my stock

"Why 'O' in 'GO' and 'TO' pronounce differently?"

"Why 'Gene' and 'Genre' pronounce differently from it's spelling?"

"Why 'write', 'right', 'rite'.etc all have same pronunciation when spell and meaning differ?"

He is just staring at me without much movement and most importantly without any answer. I finished my lunch and got up from there. Before a walkout I told him.

"Don't forgot the root, just because English is spoken all over the world, doesn't mean it is the greatest language and just because you are good at something, doesn't mean you know everything. And yeah English is one of the stupid language I know and you look like a donkey when you proudly yell that you are the best in English"

I did a walkout in style and all I could hear him saying,

"He speaks."
