Just curious if anyone else finds this awkward.

Two times for me. I have to say this happens a lot though, maybe I should up it to three times. People mumble everything.
Randomnity, quit following me! Seriously yesterday I did this five times in class in front of everyone before I got he was saying "night side" instead of "mad side". No, those two words *don't* sound alike.

So apparently at least more than five times for me. It's hard to weigh what is more disrespectful? Embarassing someone by asking again and again or patronizing someone/ not making an effort to understand him.
