    Re: Commonly misused words and phrases

    I may have mentioned this before, but one that gets on my nerves is the use of "they" and "their" when referring to one person. This has become the standard way for people to avoid using masculine pronouns, but it just goes against everything I was taught about pronoun subject agreement.

    My dad said that all the time, talk about something that drives you nuts.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I think that's kind of a northeastern thing, isn't it? I have a good friend from Boston and she says, "So don't I" all the time.

    I like to say "unloosen" just because it drives my wife nuts.
    "Hey, can you unloosen the lid of this pickle jar?"

    "Take it for granite", I find especially agonizing to endure.

    "So don't I" all the time.
    For us southerners (albeit transplanted) use this saying in a sentence so I can share in your annoyance.

    Dom,
    It's the same as "so do I".

    Beats me.
