Man 'wins argument' by pointing out tiny mispronunciation in girlfriend's sentence

A MAN has thoroughly proved his point by abandoning his argument and highlighting a small error in his girlfriend’s pronunciation.

Martin Bishop was jubilant after his girlfriend stumbled over a word in the middle of her entirely reasonable point.

He said: 
“I realised midway through that what she was being really sensible and was probably right about the whole thing. It was looking bleak.

“But then when she said ‘perogative’ instead of ‘prerogative’. It was like God had smiled upon me the clouds parted, and her incredibly minor mispronunciation in an other wise logical sentence gave me a burst of strength.

“When you get an opportunity like that you just can’t let it slip away. I waited until she finished her sentence and then, right when she thought she’d gotten away with it, I said ‘sorry? did you mean to say ‘perogative’? And then, when she tried to go back on herself, I completely changed the subject.

“I won.”

Every Daily Mail story takes 30 minutes off your life


EVERY Daily Mail story you read takes 30 minutes off your life, experts have revealed.

The Institute for Studies found that reading the newspaper is worse for you than smoking, and much less educational.

Meanwhile, the length of the article makes little difference, with two-paragraph dissections of international events and copy and pasted features about celebrities having the same effect.

The research also showed that even when reading ironically, the result was just as detrimental.

Legal secretary Nikki Hollis said: “I just read it to laugh at it with my friends, but if I knew what it was doing to me I’d have quit years ago.”

Regular reader Wayne Hayes said: “I heard this but I won’t believe it until I see it under a headline with three spelling mistakes, and next to a picture of an American television actress I’ve never heard of in a bikini.”
