In India the teachers are called "madam" by the students. Today I asked G. what her Madam's name was and she said, "Madam Madam." Makes sense - to a 3 yr old.
This reminds me a serious pet peeve, and I'm not afraid to share it.
People who have the same first name as last name.
Michael Michaels, Richard Richards, William Carlos Williams - had to look at that one on the bulletin board all 10th grade.
Have you absolutely no imagination??!! This seriously bothers me. Seriously.
