At the table next to mine this AM:
Waitress: "I'll bring you some more Holiday sauce."
(TBGs ears perk up at this...)
Customer 1: "That will be lovely."
(Illiterate waitress leaves)
Customer 2: "What's she bringing?"
C1: "Holiday sauce. For my Eggs Benedict."
C2: "Oh. Ok."
Constant Readers will be proud of me; I did not head-smack either of the customers or the waitress...
I did throw up in my mouth a little, but no actual projectile vomiting occurred.
Question: How much violence should be allowable to visit upon people that butcher the English language?
