I learned something new today.
I discovered this while checking out why some people say “ek-cetera” instead of “etcetera.”
Eye dialect is the representation of regional or dialectal variations by spelling words in nonstandard ways, such as writing wuz for was and fella for fellow. This is also known as eye spelling. The term eye dialect was coined by linguist George P. Krapp in “The Psychology of Dialect Writing” (1926).
This is an extraordinary blog since it is positive. In this instance, a customer service representative went out of her way big time to assist me.
I had a problem with my Weber gas grill.
As I was cooking, the entire bottom fell out because it had rusted away. I called Weber Customer Service (24/7, 365) to see what kind of help I could get for this unit that I had purchased in 2005. The representative suggested it was time to get a new one since the part was very expensive. I thanked her and said I would think about it.
A few minutes later, she called me back and said she had done further research. She said that the unit was still under warranty and I would get the entire cookbox free of charge, with free shipping.
I just had to write about it since this never happened to me before.
