I find it difficult to say the word
True it is an under-used word which has fallen out of common parlance, but I was someone who championed the cause of this small evocative word, until I was forced to work with a man who believed the word to in fact be FRUITITION.
Being as he was my boss and held the power to fire me for obstinance, it took a year and a half of sniggering behind his back at this, and his many other malapropisms before confronting his ignorance. By this time it had become a long-running joke within the company and we would work the word FRUITITION into conversation as often as possible, bored as we were with our jobs and intent on insubordination.
Ah, small minds; small pleasures.
This is what causes me to stumble over the word fruition.
