I too, CANT STAND hearing borrow used in that manner. My X used to say the same thing, all the time... It would rouse a rage so distinct that it can not be misrepresented as anything less than pure hate.

I mean, it is complete disregard for the words usage.

Overreacting? Oh hell no.

In fact, I say you've not yet reacted harshly enough.

being 'axed' questions as well as other common rapes of the english language which should have been readily addressed in the third grade are far too every-day in their use to warrant for passive recognition.

It's more the vague support groups that form on here around a common annoyance or problem that I seek.

I wouldn't say it's overreacting to be bothered by it, that's human nature, but going on the forums and posting a thread on it is just a little bit of an overreaction, don't worry it's just venting.
For after all what's man in nature? A central point in between nothing & all, infinitely far from understanding either.

They've been at it for years. This morning was just the final straw. Is it overreacting or having standards? Although I guess they have standards too. Just very low ones.

"Can you borrow me money?"

"My mom was going to borrow me some money."

"...and after she borrowed me the money..."

Says my co-worker. Gah! LEND! LEND YOU DUMB... The word is lend. "Can you lend me some money?" How hard is that?

I also hear words like "Simular." I hate simular. I also hate it when a co-worker "axes" me a question. I just keep waiting for one of them to have some pasketti for lunch or to pace around their desk while holding their groin until I ask if they need to use the bathroom.

This surpasses all cultural and racial boundaries, and crosses the generation gaps. They all fall into the category of "Hit me with a stick until I stop talking."

Edumacation no's no bandrys.
