Buttah!

5) Have you ever walked out of a business because of the music they were playing?

of course

9) What is your favorite font?

For what application? On what type of screen, or paper? Is it for signage, or logos, or just general reading? With long paragraphs?

General purpose, I think something old fashioned like Garamond is always pleasant. On screens, I believe Verdana is one of Microsoft's finest achievements. These are boring choices, but it's because they've worked well for us all.

It is usually the sole purpose of my visit.

8) What pronunciation/variant of an English word in a country other than your own annoys you the most? (e.g/ Tuesday = Toos-day/Chews-day math/maths...)

Math. Mathematics consists of a number of disciplines and is therefore plural.
The plural should still exist in the abbreviated form, maths.

7) What noun should never be verberized?

There ain't no noun that can't be verbed.

Unfortunately.

Forgot this one.

I now work with a group in India. Discussing urgent, highly technical networking issues. Every single word they speak is annoying, because I can't understand them for shit, and we need to get work done. I love them, and I want them to succeed, but my patience is damn near over.

I have the same problem with them, it's probably because they learned English from the Brits.

Now take British English with a British accent, add an Indian sing song inflection over long distance phone line to a hearing impaired American. Fugetaboutit.
