Pin = Pin
Pen = Pin
It's really annoying when people pronounce pin and pen both as pin.
Pen rhymes with Ben, not bin.
I've actually had people ask me for a pen, and I'll wondow why someones asking me for a sharp metal object. What, do I look like I'm getting ready to hem a skirt?
I'll either say I don't have one, or say "what?"
If I say I don't have one, I've had people something like "You're holding one", and I'll be "Oh, you mean this PEN."
You wouldn't say pig pin, would you?
Where the hell does that pronunciation come from?
