    Did it ever occur to people that sometimes I want my fly down?

    It irritates me when people complain about how people say things even though there is no confusion or misunderstanding in what's being said. I used to be guilty of it at one time, but now I feel like I "grew out of it".

    Very sad how addictive this habit is though.

    I recently tried to quit and got unbelievably cranky (to put it lightly). For the most part, if you're surrounded by smokers, you're screwed. I'm just going to have to wait for a time when I don't expect to interact with people for a while because I can't expect people to have enough patience for me without a cigarette.

    I believe that tendency comes from the influence of German on American English and is common in the Midwest, where large populations of German immigrants influenced the vernacular. In German, some words are the same in adjective and adverb form. The word for "real" in German is "echt." However, "echt" can also mean "really" depending on context. So a German would say "Das ist echt cool" (yes, many young Germans say "cool") or "Das ist echt Gross" and it would translate as "That is real/really cool" or "That is real/really big." Another example would be "langsam," meaning "slow/slowly." A German would say " Bitte, langsam fahren" to mean "please, drive slow/slowly." As the German lacks a distinct adverb form, German immigrants likely used the adjective form for both.

    I've always thought that most improper grammar is simply laziness.

    Interesting. I actually took German, so I recall what you are referring to.

    "bitte" is why Cincinnatians are known for saying "Please?" instead of "What?" when we don't understand something.
