Grrrr!!! Sometimes certain grammar blunders drive me cuckoo! This happens every once in awhile but I've heard it several times in the last couple of days.

 

TAKE vs BRING

 

It's not "bring this to your father" or "bring me home." It's TAKE! I never hear it the other way around. Using take rather than bring. Not ranting at you guys, of course. Just venting!!!  GRRR!!! 🥴😵😣😬🙃

I wonder if there is a colloquialism at play here. Are there regions where "bring me home" is a common saying?

Thou ventest well!

 

From ivory tower to the boondocks, I hear “compared to” being used to pose two different ideas, things, etc.   So wait:  different things are similar?  “In contrast to” should be used.   But, I sense we think “contrast” is Thurston Howell III usage.

 

And (picky me) there’s the phrase “swell down”.   Might as well say “Inflate down”.  This is the real Deflategate.

 

And you can bring that to the bank!😀

This reminds me of a couple of months ago when I was on a call with my doctor and writing down instructions on my phone on how to soak my injured toe and of course wrote “hamsters rip in shreds” instead of “rip washcloth in shreds”. 😅😂🤣
