A Yorkism that’s been through the wash

This is one that I’m not personally guilty of, but I hear it a lot – in fact, not that long ago, it came over the police scanner here at the paper!
It’s pronouncing the word “laundromat” as “laundry-mat.” I guess in a lot of ways, it makes sense; after all, you don’t do your “laundro” there. But still! That’s like when people say “li-berry” instead of “library.” It’s just plain the wrong letter!
