Default incorrect terminology

I get annoyed when I watch one of those home improvement episodes on tv when one of the "contractors" talks about routering the lumber, A router is a machine that routs.

Talking US english....

And, not necessarily, English...LOL

However, two of my pet peeves are, bad spelling and using the wrong word, so I agree with Lee.

I don't watch those shows, but I love them. I get more business from folks who call and need someone to finish their little "DIY" project up. The biggest majority say " it looked so easy on tv", or " I thought it would only take three days like on tv". Keep 'em comin......LATWTTB..(laughing all the way to the bank)....

Fer sure Lee, "Routing" will suffice. My pet peeve are folks saying "Libary" instead of library or "Febuary" instead of February. Also "Larnyx" instead of Larynx.

Remember: "Ain't" fell in the paint and ain't used no more,,,

Sometimes it's a little bit confused, for foreigners, but it's really good to see their job!
Very instructive.
