Today we were getting ready to wrap up a meeting and one of my co-workers asked if we were done.
Then, very politely, she was told that "Cookies are done. People are finished."
Alright, so it was a little condescending, but for some reason, I can't stop thinking of that little saying. I love grammar rules - mostly because I don't know many of them. For instance, I can never remember if it's whomever or whoever (although Denver Kelly once tried to set me straight on that one). I can never remember if it's "Rachel and me" or "Me and Rachel" or "Rachel and I." The book, "Marley and Me" has helped slightly with that...but I swear that sometimes it's correct to say I, right?
Anyway, I usually don't say that I'm "done" with something, but this little saying will probably help me remember to be more on my toes.
What are your grammatical pet peeves? What about any cute sayings that will help us keep things straight?
