Gotta say I hate that one too - I grew up here and I never pronounced women woman. Most of my family don't either - I think it's mostly the younger generation. No idea why.

I find that the 'woman' thing is most often said by older men; definitely not something I hear younger folks saying.

It's always the beers & bears, cheers & chairs, hears and hairs, shears & shares that confuse the hell out of me.

Beer: Large mammal often found in forests.
Beer: Not clothed or covered.
Beer: A cold beverage enjoyed in the summer.

Noticed Kiwi MrS saying woman more recently, I'm sure he used to say women. It drives me mad but he apparently can't help himself...sigh
Pin/pan/pen has been known to confuse me, I usually decode it depending on the scenario.
Him mentioning the number after 5 sometimes gives me a few raised eyebrows if the context isn't clear

The kiwi accent is funny. In Summer kiwis love to sit on a dick and drink piss. ( sit on the deck and drink beer ) Why do kiwis use the word woman as both singular and plural instead of women. Funny bunch these kiwis.
