Should've, could've, would've. No "of" damnit.

And whom is not interchangeable with who.

And don't say "with which" then go and end a sentence using with anyway.

And if you say "I'm well" to try and be a wise-ass to me I'll slap your face off because that means healthy and I can use "I'm good" if I want! Fuck!

The form who increasingly replaces whom in objective case contexts. According to the OED (2nd edition, 1989), whom is "no longer current in natural colloquial speech". Lasnik and Sobin (2000) argue that surviving occurrences of whom are not part of ordinary English grammar, but the result of extra-grammatical rules for producing "prestige" forms.

Food is not healthy or unhealthy; people are healthy or unhealthy
Food is healthful or unhealthful

You are not nauseous unless you are causing other people to become queasy; you are nauseated

And there's no "I" in Teamocil, at least not where you'd think

A few of us enjoy being extra-grammatical. *throws scarf over shoulder*

the problem is people attempting the extra-grammatical and failing. i have certainly seen whom used where only who is appropriate by any ruleset. you know whom you are.

For people like you and I, this can certainly be frustrating.

It's Hawthorne Heights is shit, not Hawthorne Heights are shit.

And one that pisses me off real bad: "which team are we versing?" or "We've already versed them". You can play versus someone, but other than that, not appropriate use of that word at all.

^ I'll agree to the second part. I hate when people say that shit. Although those damn Brits are cool to say "are" instead of "is" but not the Yanks.

at my job we're supposed to ask new donors if they are feeling lightheaded or dizzy and this one girl is always like 'are you feeling any lightheaded or dizziness'
but when i say it im all like 'are you feeling any lightheadedness or dizziness'

i was like whatever, man. until she and some other dude laughed at me one day and said i was wrong. i was like >_> oh okay cause i wasnt gonna argue. i still say it correctly though.

my brothers baby mama/gf says SUPPOSE UH BLEE . lol

and also the other day at work these two girls were given the task of walking around and placing red tape on areas in need of repair before the construction men left for good. as i walked to the breakroom i heard them discussing a portion of the wall and whether they should put tape on it. this one girl was like 'oh i dont know. i think its UN-REPAIRABLE'. i wanted to correct her so badly and let her know its irreparable. but i just would have looked like an anal bitch so i bit my tongue. then i bled everywhere.
