    Angry Good vs. Well

    Allow me a moment to vent..............................


    The next fricken time someone corrects me for saying I'm doing good after they ask me how I'm doing, I'm gonna break my size 12.5 off in their ARSE!!!!!! "Actually, it's I'm doing well." I DON"T F&^%ING CARE! I am so freaking sick and tired of the a-hole grammar snobs correcting me when I say "Good". I've had at least 3 or 4 people correct me over the last couple of weeks. I truly feel sorry for the next person who does it to me.

    And BTW, "Good" is perfectly acceptable.

    So F#$@ Y^% Grammar Snobs!


    Ok, sorry. I saw bright white light and then went a little blind there for a moment.

    All is better now. At least until someone is unfortunate enough to correct me.

    I change there to their! You're still evil Sticks!

    Actually, it's "acceptable" not "exceptable". I'm sure you'll correct this.

    For what were you looking when you originally accessed quickanddirtytips.com ? Wouldn't have been my first Google choice when searching for resources regarding grammatical correctness.

    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Haha that's funny my dad hates it when Americans (excuse me if this is wrong but I mostly hear it in the US) use 'good'. I correct people every once in while but it doesn't bother me too much
    Anyway, how you doing JSE?

    I'm wit'ya JSE...

    I get reamed for saying "A to Z" (pronounced zee) instead of "A to Zed" and other such irrelevancies all the time...substance over style is my thing.

    Next time someone corrects you, punch'em in the junk. Then ask them how "well" they feel.

    I once went into a CD store in Vegas and asked the clerk there if they had anything by the band IZZ. Of course he'd never heard of them and had to look them up on the computer. He asked, "Is, like eye ess?". And I said, "no, eye zed zed". He stopped, stared at me with his mouth open like I was from outer space and said, "eye WHAT, WHAT?".

    LOL. I told him to forget it and walked away.

    So I guess that you don't want to hear that it should be "their" ARSE. Huh?

    OUCH! Oh my, those really are 12.5 aren't they? Ew. That didn't feel so good.

    That little article is a feeble and ultimately invalid attempt to rationalize incorrect, though recently popular, English usage. But what would someone from Bush country know about English usage?

    If what you say is what you mean and it's understood by the person to whom you are speaking, I'd say it's close enough.
