Three Things Which Chap My Hide

Posted: December 23, 2013 in Life

There sure are a lot of “Grammar Nazi” memes out there. Well, here are three grammar errors which chap my hide (this isn’t an exhaustive list…just the most recent).

  1. When people use “theory” when they should use “hypothesis”.
  2. When people say “random” when it would be more accurate to say “arbitrary”.
  3. Saying “literally” when they mean “figuratively”.
