I never quite understood how to pronounce "rap" as in "rapped the door" when I was young. I'd only ever read it in books.

In high school, I stood at the door of the IT office, trying to get one of the technicians to help me. They looked over, then back at their computers, upon which they were clearly playing WoW. I started to get pissed off.

"Look!" I said, still knocking on the door. "Do you have any idea how long I've been raping this door?"

The IT guy looked at me, barely stopped himself from breaking out into a mad grin. "Oh. A while? The door can't have been too thrilled about that."
