It's CUMMINS not CUMMINGS

Sorry, but I hear this constantly, both on the forum and in the campground. You might have a Cummins engine under the hood, but not a Cummings.

The other sounds ornery.

Cummings ornery: Hilarious! Thanks Mark, love that comment! ROFL

I have a dear friend who is constantly correcting others in pronunciation and spelling. He of course purports to have perfect grammar and speech, however, there is no such person on the planet.

Another friend always retorts 'you know what I was saying'.

I used to have a pin that said "People who think they know it all really annoy those of us who do!" It was my favorite pin in my 20's and 30's.

Keep up the good work!

Trust me, I'm not trying to be the pronunciation cop, but this is one that drives me bonkers.

I know you aren't Mark, it made me think of some of my good old days, which was a very big plus.

Growing up in SW Kansas, graduated HS in 1980, went to Fullerton State (CSUF) (L.A. area) and stayed with my Uncle in Palos Verdes the summer after, boy did I get some culture shock...people thought I was from the south....with my southern twang and folks asked me where I was from.....

Here is my drive me crazy word: (Pronouncing it) Well, let me correct that to say, those that say it is like a term of endearment, I would NEVER correct them because I love them too much.

W A S H

Now, I'm from Kansas so I can get away with saying this....pronounce the above word except it would be spelled WARSH. So I would warsh the car, not wash.

Another one: I argued with my 6th grade English teacher (she was from New York) about the pronunciation of the word Arkansas. I, at the know it all age of 11, was arguing with her it should be spelled Arkansaw if it were to be pronounced that way. I was but a mouthy child then, but will never forget her telling me to shut my big fat yapping trap! (My Mother always said my mouth would be my worse enemy growing up)

Ornery Cummings and Goings.....

My Dad always knew that Cummins was Cummins. He built his trucking company up from a single Kenworth Cab-Over with a Caterpillar engine to at one point over 35 trucks, including lots of Peterbilts with Cummins engines.

Another pronunciation one that I like to trip my friend up on is the word SIEVE.

It is pronounced with a short i....like siv but he pronounces it seev.

Funny ones: life long friends from Alabama pronunciation:

Laura Ashley: Lori Ashley
Torino: Torina
Acura: Akra
Excalibur Hotel in Vegas: Escabular
Weeds: Wheeds

I have heard people on TV say "Cummings" when they should have said Cummins.It bothers me too, as growing up in the trucking business there never was a question about how Chelsie Cummins named his company and engines, all the way back to 1935 when he drove a Packard from Columbus, In. to NYC with his diesel engine prototype installed.

In this scene from Shall We Dance, with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, the two create another trademark classic with both their dancing on skates as well as the song, "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off"
