    I was taught that "Effect means to make a change because it takes Energy". Once you effect change, it "Acts" - which is how the effect then Affects something.

    Thanks to Frances Bentley, my HS English teacher :)

    Affect is a Verb.
    Effect is a Noun.

    If I hear "reach out" one more time, I might croak. That and "at the end of the day" have to be the most over-used cliches of all time.

    At the end of the day, if you reach out past those two phrases for a cliche, it should be trail-rated.

    "The Principal is your PAL" I learned in grade school :)

    [of course, he really wasn't my Pal at all despite the fact I had to spend so much time on a chair in the corner of his office ;)]

    Since this thread was brought up, I ALWAYS see folks asking for advise rather than advice.

    The most common error is the possessive its spelled it’s.

    More than once I’ve sent an email to on-line editors (including the local newspaper) with subject line: “It’s its, not ‘it’s’!”

    Oh absolutely!
    I used its' once (as a possessive) and I thought my office mates were going to LOSE THEIR MINDS! Hahaha.

    I used it’s instead of its on a Humanities class assignment in college and even though I got the answer right, the prof—an eccentric Brit who drove a maroon Checker Marathon!—marked the answer wrong because of that mistake.

    I argued both the fact that the answer was ostensibly correct and “what was wrong with it’s?” He didn’t budge and he never explained why the it’s was wrong, saying only “figure it out.” I did, and I never made that mistake again.

    Here's a fun one i just read on this forum:

    "I also pay into other countries, states and cities coiffures as I travel..."

    He's subsidizing haircuts, I take it? ;-) (I think he meant "coffers".)

    Haha, I once insisted to a forum that the correct word was "gambit", and that there was no such word as "gamut". I learned then to always allow that I could be wrong, hahaha.

    The one that shocks me the most is "realtor" being pronounced "reel a tor". I hear this as often from real estate agents as the general public.
    I hesitate to do business with people that don't know their own business. I'm sure you all know folks in automobile sales that screw up nomenclature all the time.

    It's the 'Spyder' instead of 'Spider' that drives me nuts. The crazy thing is that it is usually a Spider owner that gets it wrong. I'm always thinking have you ever actually read the back of your own car?

    I generally dismiss or ignore anything said by anyone who types “prolly.”

    Harsh? I don’t think so. After all, as someone told me years ago “It’s a doggy dog world.”

    Hahaha, I assume this is me? Because I do that ALL the time, haha. There are a few words I've taken to typing the way I'd say them if we were in person and joking- around: "prolly", "waddy'all" "sunnuva", 'monit", 'malloverit".
    You get the idea. These "words" are usually accompanied by smilies, or whatever.

    Not harsh at all. If aimed at me, it's well deserved, hahaha.
