1. “Deep-seated” The phrase is DEEP-SEEDED!!!! It’s a farming/gardening reference, people!!!! I know in speaking language, they sound the same, but please do not go about pretending to be college graduate, with lots and lots of education, and write a post and tell everybody that they should not mock your deep-seated issues. Because let me tell you honey, I started mocking you right then and there. UPDATE: I AM TOTALLY WRONG ABOUT THIS. The phrase really is deep-seated. It is not a farming reference. LESSON LEARNED: Always google your convictions before blogging.
3. “Long row to hoe.” This is the correct phrase. Again, farming reference, as America was once a largely farming community. It’s an image meaning that you will have difficult, tiresome, work ahead of you, but it has to be done. It is not “Long Road to Home” or “Long Road a Hole” or “long road” anything. Please stop saying it.
4. Also, I received a stern lecture on how to pronounce the magazine title Ensign (long I) from my dad when I was a child, so if you say anything about something you read in the En-Sin, I think of my father. So I guess you are helping my family stay close with every mispronunciation.
5. Please do not end your talks/testimonies “in the name of THY son” Because He’s not my son. In the name of the son, or just in the name of, is fine.
I will forgive it in children, mostly because it’s hilarious when your daughter is giving the scripture in Primary, and she won’t say “for behold” because she’s only three. (Three by hold, this is my work and it’s gory…)
I will forgive it if English is your second, or third, or fourth language. I bow down to you for being multi-lingual.
I think this post makes me sound bitter, and I’m really not. I just grew up with my grammar corrected constantly, and now I mock people in my head, and you now know some reasons why.
