I immediately group them in the group of people that don't know what they are talking about. I have never heard someone in the respected car builders circle refer to nitrous oxide as naws. Its just a pet peeve of mine...Almost as bad as hearing people talk about their new rims! (What? You got new rims put on your wheels? Didn't know that was possible....)
I hang around a LOT of computer illiterate people, and i always end up fixing their computers, and i have never head anyone refer to a computer as a CPU... a PC maybe, which is a correct term...
when people put other people into a certain group based on one or two words in their vocabulary, it tells me more about that person than it does the people using "incorrect" terms..

we live in a world of comercialization. there are countless brand names that are used to refer a product.

do you get upset when someone says, "do you have any Kleen-ex"?

I gotta get some NOS (nitrous) on my zamboni (ice-resurfacer). And maybe a new engine CPU (computer, ECU, ECM, PCM). Some dude in a rice burner (Civic) had me by a car length when I hit 3 mph. He took off so quick I needed a bandaid (bandage) for my wounds and a kleenex (facial tissue) for my tears.

If I had my rollerblades, I'd catch up to him. Then I'd stick a q-tip (cotton swap on a stick) in his ear so he could hear his fart can (coffee can muffler).

Maybe I should just sit back and have a Coke (caffinated beverage) and a smile.

I was once asked by this cute little southern belle if I wanted a Coke. I said sure. She went and got me an Orange Crush. She smiled when she gave it to me.

Ohhh, my fiancee takes things one step further. What is the new Bonneville SSEi outside? It'* the grey car. What was my 03 RSX when I had it? The little silver car. Gerneralizations are just as bad as branding a particular product group.

I hate it when my fiance refers to all SUVs as Jeeps. I correct her every time in the hopes that someday it will sink in.
