Proper American Speech

Today I was in Target when I heard a young child screaming, “crockhead, crokhead!” His very young mother (I assume it was his mother, though she looked young enough to be his sister) was with him. She looked down at him and reprimanded him, saying, “Child, you’ve got to learn to say your words properly. It’s CRACK-head. crackhead, not crockhead.”
