For now you can be right. Once you get married, she'll be right.

If a man says something in the middle of a forest and there's no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

Down here everyone I know pronounces it like cumpis or cumpus. If I were sitting around the marina pronouncing the word compass like its spelled, I don't think anyone would know what I was talking about.
example: Me: It seems like I'm not getting good readings off my compass.
Other Guy: Sorry. Did you say you are having trouble with your radio or something?

She promounces "cum/pass", right there you know you got a keeper.
the day she stops "cuming pass", "ditch" her...

Just as long as the rest of the discussion isn't "You are going to sell that floating thing with the cumpiss when we get married, aren't you?" you're ok.........

Now is not the time to practice your manhood. You have chosen to give that up. All is not lost. You must now learn how to say "yes dear".

FWIW I'm on your side but I ain't going up against your other half. I had enough of a battle explaining how I was buying 3 more guns this coming Saturday.
First plan was I was not telling her. I was cornered like a rat and she knew it. Plan B was the investment speach...
Desert Eagle .44Mag, Colt Delta 10mm, and a S&W Lew Horton 44SP. These will have a new home.
