Do you hate it when people say "puter" in place of "computer"?

It doesn't bother me in chat/text but if someone actually said it I would bitch slap them.

I don't particularly like "puter," but I do refer to it as a Compy or Lappy (damn you, Strong Bad).

Makes me think of Kill Bill when Buck throws that guy the tub of goo. What did he say? Cooter or something.

As for "puter", I usually hear it pronouced as "pewter". Sounds goofy.

I liked it better when they said "CPU" dispite it's inaccuracy. "puter" sounds like some sexual spot or something...not cute a all.

If someone says puter I would assume they are talking about their johnson

Then again, I always assume they are talking about their johnson
