“So is it considered a 3rd world country?”
Cringe. Didn’t they stop saying “third world”?
“I’ve been to a third world country. It was beautiful. But, like, people like going to those places.”
Those places? Why the stress on ‘those’? Stress on what was once unstressed.
“We have to remember. They’re still third world countries.”
You don’t have to remind us. We have to remember why they’re still, as you put it.
