Okay, so today I was talking with someone, and they kept saying "Skaneateles" and they pronounced it "skinny atlas", which is how a local says it. I say it "Skan-eatles", which is how anyone else says it. It was awkward, I wanted to correct him, but I kept my mouth shut.

Skaneateles is on the skaneateles lake (one of the finger lakes), and it's home to some pretty wealthy people (billy fucillo, Adam Weitsman). I wonder if its because the wealthy who live there wanted to say it differently than the poor.
