Terms I find annoying

Recommended Posts

 

Only semi-serious here, but I will admit that there are a handful of terms that I see here on the Wire from time to time that cause me to roll my eyes every time I see them.   They are not offensive or hurtful or something that angers me or anything like that.  I just wish I didn't see them so often.   Terms like...

 

.45 Long Colt

Spelling Cavalry "Calvary."

Period Correct  (I'll admit that I didn't find this one so bad at first, until someone I respect greatly said why he loathes it, and he had a good point.)

The War of Northern Aggression.

4th Generation Colt

 

So what are some of the other terms that while in an of themselves are probably really quite innocent, just drive you bonkers when you see them?

I thought I lived in an incorrect period - until I realized it was only a comma.

I know what you mean.  I had a period correct, 4th generation Colt, calvary model (from just after the war of northern aggression), in .45 Long Colt and some guy called it a Remmie.  I was pretty annoyed and thought about grabbing my shotty and putting a couple boolets in his butt.  Then I thought:  Life's too short to sweat the small stuff and went on my way.

 

:D

Oh, and the majority of the southern states didn't want to secede from the union. It was forced on them by the Planter Class.

 

How's that for being annoying!

Ditto! 

 

Wait....  Ditto may be annoying to someone.  Maybe, "Me too."  No...  Try,  "I also."

Advice when they mean advise

Who when it should be whom

On that same note me when it should be I (and the reverse)

Ending a sentence with ‘at’ ie ‘where is Captain Bill at?

I have to work at being grammatically correct.   The works of Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn,  Tom Sawyer is my first language.  I loved the "Me & Joe" stories by Sketter Skelton.  I'll try to clean up my act but sometimes I just like to laps into my first language.
