    Every time I hear someone say "I love me some (fill-in-the-blank)" my estimation of that person's IQ drops 10 points.

    The local authorities have put up a shiny new metal sign with a map of the local shops. It also tells you that Witney offers a 'traditonal shopping experience'.

    Maybe this is the opposite of a polytonal one? Who knows?

    And then there is The Department of Redundancy Department:

    People who say they are going to enter their PIN number into the ATM machine bug me. What do you think the N in PIN and the M in ATM stand for?

    Speaking of redundancy, don't you just love retailers that offer free gifts this time of year?

    My personal grammar peeve is "There's". "There's too many products to choose from." "There's millions of reasons why I should do this."

    "There's" is a contraction of "There" and "is". You would not say, "There is too many products" or, "There is millions of reasons." You would say, "There are."

    which witch is which?

    When going to grade school, I don't think i ever learned the grammer rules. I just looked at the pattern given in the example and repeated it on the exercices. I randomly put in comma. I did't know what a preposition phrase until someone explained it when I was in my 30's. No one caught on to this because I tested well. Due to my test scores, I was placed in the advance enlish classes. Grades were content A, grammer C, which always averaged to a B.

    While speaking, I frequently mixed my tenses and had other grammatical error were evident. This waz over looked because I did't talk a lot to people.
