When speaking do you drop any of the consonants in вств?
Don responds: the literary norm is to pronounce all four consonants in this word. Generally the first в is dropped if the verb has the root чувств- or здравств-. The first в is usually not pronounced as well in the -лвств- cluster. (All that information is garnered from Русское литературное произношение by Р. И. Аванесов, sixth edition, 1984. That's the book by which I generally guide my pronunciation.

It's because you said "мужик" which means a "mature man" or can even mean "macho". So no wonder :)
