    Oh I'm so glad I'm not the only one who corrects people's grammar. I even correct people when they say'different to' when it should be 'different from' and don't get me started when people start pronouncing 'h' as haich' (not sure about that spelling but please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong). Ha Ha

    So funny you would mention that, I grew up in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The county is the only county in the whole state that identifies is ethnicity as Irish....must be a celtic thing as my mother would always do that pronounciation. She was like 4 or 5 generation Irish American, but because of the concentration of Irish about she still had a pronounced Irish accent...how was that possible??

    It is still pronounced haich in a good part of NE Pennsylvania.

    I silently correct grammar. I try to lead by example. However , I am a quick types and hit the send button too quickly sometimes. Also autocorrect is my nemesis.

    I tried to correct a young girl working the McDonalds drive through

    Me- may I have some honey mustard, please?
    Employee- we ain't got none
    Me- you don't have any
    Employee- nope, we ain't got none

    I tried

    That's brilliant!!!!!
    I am very picky with grammar, I'm always correcting the children in my class. It used to be very unfashionable to do that, but now we're encouraged to.

    Reminds me of the conversation between a southern father and son.

    Dad - son, please pass the 'lasses.
    Son - dad, don't you mean molasses?
    Dad - son, how can I say molasses when I ain't got no 'lasses yet.​
