Now that I've had a few beers and can think a little clearly, here's one quick anecdote.
griftdrift's turn to bet.
griftdrift: $2,000 (tosses two $1000 chips in)
New Jersey guy: Dealer, he only said a thousand.
griftdrift: No, I said two thousand.
New Jersey guy: I swear I heard you say a thousand.
griftdrift: No problem but I really did say two. You might have guessed from the way I talk I'm not from around here.
New Jersey guy: No kidding.
