For a couple of years the Quebec fanatics have had their knickers in a knot because some downtown Montreal merchants are using Bonjour Hi as a greeting! I say get a life but….
Some Bloc Quebecois member of parliament suggested that the say Bonour Ho! Instead!
First off its pretty stupid and I would not use it but what amazes me is that Angos(English) are getting offended over it because of the slang meaning of “HO” Women are saying its offensive and men are saying they will knock out the teeth of anyone who said it to their wives
Why? Yes I know what it means but that’s not what it means!
Would you be offended if you walked up to Santa with your wife and 2 daughters and he said HO HO HO?
Are you offended if I walk into the garden center and ask for a Hoe?
Are you offended if you hear a French person talking about seals? (How many of you know that one?)
I am curious as to what English speakers outside of Quebec think
