Yeah, I've spent many years explaining to Americans that that 'fag' usually meant 'cigarette' (not public school servant or person with homosexual proclivities) … But that then devolves into how we spell cigarette and then acrimony breaks out over use/abuse of language and at that point some Indian / Romanian / Russian / Pakistani chimes in with their ideas of pronunciation and it's civil war in the engineering office. We have more disputes over language than you would believe.

Back at Caliver – I order a fair amount of stuff from them and am always amazed at both their stock levels and the the checkout method.
