Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading and is hosted by Bermuda Onion.
I worked in the data processing business and recently worked on a project with a US banking client of ours.
It was interesting the different terminology that we used in our data centres (Canadian) centers (American). When they have to correct a cheque (Canadian) or check (American) that was keyed incorrectly by an operator they call it scrubbing, hence the operator is called a scrubber.
This made us Canadians of British/Irish background (or who are drawn to British/Irish books/movies/TV) laugh to ourselves.
