Half a century ago, there were already some people who got it wrong.

I had a boss who insisted that blanks in the box were "PUNCH CARDS",
that it wasn't until they got used that they became "PUNCHED CARDS".
He also said that the colored pencils that I manually did graphs
with were "COLOUR PENCILS".
