Pot calling the kettle black

Tourist family pointing out various stops on a platform station map: "We could get off at Potomac (pronounced Pot-o-mac) station then walk to the cemetery."

Guy in a suit standing near by corrects the pronunciation.

Tourist lady smiles and says thanks.

Train pulls up.

Tourist lady says to family: "Let's go in this car, that guy's a prick."

Sometimes the metro drivers call it Pah-TAH-mic (rhymes with atomic) and that makes me think that even though I've lived there for six years, I still don't know how to pronounce it right.

You say "Pah-TAH-mic," I say "Pah-TOH-mic"...
