I've heard it both ways for years. So long as I knew what they meant, I didn't care. But I had the same issues with lien, sometimes pronounced "len" which I thought was weird as I had heard "lean" for many years before. But so long as I had one when I was supposed to, who cared.
My opinions are not necessarily my employers.
