"Poll question: Would u correct a colleague/work 'friend' who said pacifically"

When they meant specifically? Like this is a girl I'm super cool with a work and I think she's otherwise a real go getter at my job and has great leadership qualities. We text here and there outside of work but I wouldn't consider her a friend friend (if we were friends like that I would have no problem correcting her but since we aren't I don't want to offend or embarrass, we aren't that close)

But she says pacifically when she means specifically and I cringe hard every time

And I think it may hold her back at some point in the future

Poll result (6 votes)
Yes (4 votes)Vote
No (1 votes)Vote
I'd make it a point to say specifically around her as much as possible and hope she caught on (1 votes)Vote

If it's someone I didn't mind presenting poorly, I wouldn't correct them.

She's the type to keep saying "You know what I meant" instead of saying shit correctly, seeing that she get paid to talk to large groups and teach for a living.

junior to me. I don't think I could do it to someone older or senior to me.

And when I do it I phrase it as a suggestion "I think the word is..." or "isn't the word pronounced..."

I don't want to be a classist jerk, so I just keep my mouth shut.
