Yeah, habit I think. My dad was educated as well, but the machine where my mother placed the dirty clothes to become clean was forever known as the "warsher".

Is that an east coast thing? Cause my friend from NJ does the "er" thing too. Like she calls another coworker "Lis-er" instead of Lisa. Its kinda cool....

My friends and I talk like this when playing a card game. It also adds to the effect when you add an 's' to the end of a word...even though it isn't normally there, and you aren't talking about more than one.

example: (draws a card from the stack, looks at it) I wins!! (everyone looks mad, and disappointed)...then say "mmmnnigh, I'm jus playeen". Thunderous laughter will most assuredly follow.

Bonus points for a follow up statement like this one:
Anyone need anything? I'm going to run up to the Valeros for some more beers.
