You'd also have to speak his language to be clearly understood. It's just

Well, I must be one of the morons that you speak of so ... eloquently .....
for instance, when I need to adjust the valves on my Corvair, I remove the
rocker covers using the spanners which I keep, generally for emergencies,
in the car's boot.

I now feel extremely foolish, because I suspect that what I should be doing
is removing the valve covers using wrenches which generally reside in my
car's trunk.

Thank heavens that there is someone here who can educate morons like me,
the better to keep our terminological inexactitudes on the straight and
