My coworker keeps saying impertinent when she means imperative. It's all I can do to keep from giggling when she says "It is impertinent that these guests call us back about their reservations."

ahahaha! I got an e-mail from my boss saying who our new supervisor was and who would be acting supervisor next week and then it said "sorry for the incontinence."

I hope you were at least kind enough to get them some Depends(TM). Unless you want to have some really long staff meetings.

hahahahaha~! Sometimes you gotta wonder what's on people's minds when they're about to use an SAT word...

I had a student use the word "chronic" by saying, "chronic aneurysm" when explaining the details of a story. Three other students in the class jumped all over this poor boy by pointing out that "chronic" wasn't the right word to use there. However, they, too, got the definition wrong.

So I handed the boy the dictionary and told him to look up "chronic" and read us the definition so we'd all learn something.

The other students confused "chronic" with "congenital".

If only I could do that with my 53-year old coworker (who is currently shooting rubberbands at my coworkers across the hall).

One of my co-workers says "brung" instead of "brought."

I think that's just a southern thing ;)

I think it's just bad grammar.
