oh and another one .... my mother pronounces that one city in Tennessee as "Men-vis". She KNOWS she's saying it wrong but for some reason she thinks it makes her sound "homey" to mispronounce it.

She also says "nun" instead of "non". When she would refer to "nun-smokers", I'd have to (yes,HAVE TO!) tell her that "i dont' think nuns smoke".

People who say "mill" instead of "meal". People who say "fill" instead of "feel". People who refer to my city as "Inda-naplis".

I had a cousin who would ask for a "bow" of cereal. Even tho' I was a little kid, I wanted to scream at her "...there's an "L" at the end of that word!!!"

My youngest sister has become an icon in our family for using the word "posta". You know ..... how you're "posta" put your socks on before you put your shoes on?"

I can't stand the word "moist."

So far I haven't heard anyone say "fondue" for "fondant," but now I won't be surprised when it happens. icon_smile.gif

Ok...I'll join...

It positively makes me postal when my sister says something is "fun".

You know, she'll say "Oh, how fun!" instead of "how cute" or "that's great" or just about anything. SOOO annoying!

Oh gosh that drives me nuts when the room decorating shows want to make a room "fun"!

I told my hubby one day, "It's my bedroom! It's not a room you have FUN in!" He gave me a look and said, "What?!" then we both burst out laughing!

I have had two people in the last week call fondant "fondue" when they were talking to me about cakes. I just thought it was a local mistake, but I guess not!

This is funny (the topic) so I just have to add to it. I have a horrible phrase that I use..I try REALLY hard NOT to, but it just comes out. If I have an itch (say..on my back) I will ask hubby to "itch my back". It drives him nutty!! But he says it's kinda cute, and that he'll get over it.

i used to be a representative for a company that does home parties exclusively for women (yes it's THAT kind of company icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif) and one day a lady called me asking if we sold "ling-a-ree"... i responded that yes we sold "long-sja-ray", would she like me to send her a catalog...and then she goes on and on about a party they'd done a short time before that sold tons of "ling-a-ree"...

i'm thinking "lady, i just gave you a somewhat subtle polite hint that you're not saying it correctly...what part of that did you miss?"

now my husband, best friend, and i all call it that just for fun!

HEHEHE....I say itch my back too!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I am also from a part of Pennsylvania that says "younz guys". It drives ppl not from around here nuts! I also say "pop" instead of soda. My best friend who joined the Navy after high school and her husband laugh everytime they hear me say those words. Oh, and something else he thought was funny...I say "sweeper" instead of vaccuum. I do say fondant though!!! icon_biggrin.gif

OMG, How funny! A co-worker and I were talking just yesterday about the cakes I did for our fundraising event on Thursday. I had covered both cakes in fondant and my friend told me she overheard 2 ladies talking about the white fondue icing on my cakes. She said she actually heard one of them asking if I made it in a fondue pot and then poured it over the cakes and it hardened up.

She had to walk away to keep from laughing, and I laughed so hard I thought I would pee my pants. icon_rolleyes.gif

Now I'm confused ... because it IS a sweeper! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I also go batty when people refer to their "blinker" instead of a "turn signal". (I bet it's a regional thing because no one around here calls it a "blinker" but it seems like I hear it in all the shows out of California.) If you ever get a ticket for failing to use these, I'm sure it's a "turn signal violation" not a "blinker violation".

And is this a regional thing, too? Another one that I never hear people use the term around here, but it's used in the movies and on TV shows ..... The little machine that automatically changes the channel on your TV is a "remote" or "remote control" .... not a "clicker". aaaauuuggghhhh!!

(wow, I had no idea my list was so long! I'll try to shut up now!) icon_redface.gif

You should let them know you just pour the fondue over the cake, and that they should try it!!! haha...that would be really funny!
