This battle you'll love.... My wife Tracey has always made fun of my Mom and Dad saying the word CHIMALEE instead of CHIMNEY. As in the smoke goes up the Chimalee.
We'll tonight, just now I finally caught her. She said "It smells like raw SEWERAGE." I said "Excuse me?" and she said "Raw SEWERAGE" and I laughed and finally knew I got her!
Let's put it this way: if I was wrong here, I haven't paid very good attention as a BOILERMAN for 25 years. I KNEW it to be SEWAGE - no R in SEWAGE. Well I proved it to her - and talked about SEWAGE OPERATORS, etc.
Fells good to be right occasionaly :)
