Okay, I was in a bookstore today and the cashier said, “Can I help who’s next?” Grrrr! I hate that! Since I was next, I said to him, “You should say ‘Can I help the next person?’. ‘Who’ is a pronoun and can’t be used as the object of a sentence.” He said, “Oh.” Then I thought… Oh my FSM, I’m turning into my father (may he rest in peace). Am I alone in thinking people should be able to speak their own language more or less correctly?
I also hate it when people say, “What was your name?” like your name has changed since you told it to them five minutes ago.
