How else is there? Do some people say "fim"?

Where are you? My grandma used to say "warsh", "spicket", "crick", but she was raised here so I don't know where she got it.

Born and raised in Erie, PA (I don't live there now). Don't know if that's the only place where words are pronounced that way. My grandfather moved up from Louisiana and he used to pronounce Hammer = Hemma. But he's the only one I ever heard say it that way.
