Jiffy vs. Chippy - No This is Not a Blog About Peanut Butter

I'm paraphrasing, but not by much:

Me: "Max come here for a second."

Maxman: "Okay, I'll be there in a chippy."

Me: "You mean jiffy."

Maxman: "What?"

Me: "The saying is, 'I'll be there in a jiffy.'"

Maxman: shrugs with the whatever look on his face - I know what this look means because I invented it. "Okay mom, I'll be there in a chippy."

Have been thinking about this and I can't think of any reason that jiffy makes more sense than chippy. Will refrain from correcting this in the future.
