Just got off the phone with an old friend. She was telling me about a house she had visited that her friend's son is buying. Why do otherwise intelligent people insist on mispronouncing realtor and realty? They are dealing with REAL estate. They are REALtors; not realators. They are in REALty; not realaty. I know this is petty and stupid but it drives me nuts. I guess I just don't have far to be driven.
