Have you ever said something and then gave yourself a what?
I do it all the time myself and I would say that anyone that has ever raided with me knows exactly what I am talking about. I oft times forget the names of abilities and just wing it. I would say something along the lines for "once a minute the boss with do this ability called somethingorother and you will need to use some personals because it does huge AoE". Now admittedly I should be better at remembering names but does it really matter? There is some ability that does big damage at a predictable time in the fight, does it really need a name? Okay, I am rationalizing, but it makes sense to me and apparently the people who raid with me become fluent in gibberish because it makes sense to them.
That is just one of many types of those what type of things. Those I call the memory what, for people like me that forget names of abilities. I suffer from the memory what more than I would like to admit. But the memory what is not the only what type there is. The typo what can be really fun too.
My favorite typo what of all time is something I saw on wowbash where a hunter was looking for a glyph for explosive shot but made an unfortunate typo and asked trade chat for the glyph of explosive shit. I admit I am even laughing as I type that. Nothing wrong with a little bathroom humor from time to time and more so when it is accidental bathroom humor. Of course trade had some fun with that but I am sure I have made my fair share of typos as well.
Then there is the third type which is the brain fart what. When you say or type something that you did not intend too. Or you answer a question that was not even asked because you heard one thing when they asked another. It is one of those moments that it is like your brain shut down and you forget even the simple things. Anyone that has ever raided has had those brain fart moments. Have you ever done a fight you have done 200 times before and suddenly get caught off guard by some mechanic? Oops, brain fart moment, completely forgot about that one.
Every single one of these cases all have the same end result. It makes sense to me, even if people might say what. Hey, people forget names, people make typos, and people seem to have brain farts from time to time. It is just human nature.
Have you ever suffered from what moments? Share some fun ones if you wish. It is okay to admit it. No one will ever be as bad as me when it comes to forgetting spell names. You just need to understand what I mean when I say that two people need to stand in the swirly thing because it makes sense to me.
