    Linguistic Boo-Boo

    My Romanian sister-in-law speaks terrific English.  As a banker, Julie has occasionally needed to use the phrase "in arrears." She just told me how she used to believe the phrase was pronounced "in the rear."

    She thought that for quite a while, so I have to assume she never said those words to a gay man. His raucous laughter would've tipped her off the minute she warned, "If you don't pay this credit card bill, the bank will have you in the rear."
