Apparently some people pronounce it 'pree-mark' as opposed to 'pry-mark', what the fuck?
if not, you're a fucking moron
who call dessert a 'sweet'.
It's not, you southern cunts. Its "shroosbury" - always has been & always will be.
She's from Manchester, but spent her primary school years in Aberdeen, and even though she's lived in the south for a while there's no excuse for Shroesbury, really.
More distressing is that she has been heard to call a Toyota Yaris a Toyota "Yah-ris."
and it's an Irish company, so there.
Only they call it Penney's south of the border.
I'll never say that though. Never.
i'm from south-west wales. my friend from glasgow says pree-mark as well but all the cardiff/english people i know say pry-mark.
Eglish people (and more recent adverts and company executies) tend to call it Pry-mark.
the majority of weejies i know say pree-mark. I know I do.
Pennies South of the border as Icarus says above.
That's the real crime here.
and Adidas instead of adeeedis
not that im ever buying either.
Quite a long time ago I decided I didn't really care which was right.
instead of the apparently correct Blink One Eighty Two. One Eighty Two sounds rubbish.
they used to re-dub them in the UK.
They don't tend to say the name now, just show the logo and the slogan.

i dont always remember but ill remember for the next week or so which is pretty good
My mum says pree-mark and it annoys me so much.

I hear they have children working factories in appalling conditions n stuff, it was on the news
big twat box full of greggs eating povvos
but for some reason people in england pronounce it Pry-mark, and I just go along with that if I'm in England.
(as in, prim and proper). That's what it looks like to me.
Who pronounced Accessorize as "accessor-eeze". Also "House of Frasier" instead of Fraser.
i was on the train on Thursday and there was a guy on his laptop writing the health and safety / environmental health report for a branch of Primark. The report, from what I could read of it, was pretty scathing. Nothing like protecting personal and confidential information, eh?
And he kept referring to Krispy Kreme doughnuts (which have only just reached the W. Yorks area as far as I am aware) but he kept pronouncing Kreme like you'd say Creme de Menthe. I didn't correct him, I just feigned ignorance.
Or was he correct?
<thinly veiled I have a friend that I go on trains with post>
that protection of confidential thing. Tsh.
But I don't say it that often.
but i can't
