    "So I'(m)" ....

    "So I'm sittin on the can today thinking about what phrases drive me nuts,,,"


    Why do folks need to start a thread, sentence, or story with "So"???

    Gratuitous (and usually incorrect) use of "literally" or "per se"

    "irregardless" - it's not a word.

    Well that's partially true. See what Merriam has to say:

    ir·re·gard·less adv \ˌir-i-ˈgärd-ləs\

    Definition of IRREGARDLESS
    nonstandard
    : regardless
    Usage Discussion of IRREGARDLESS
    Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.
    Examples of IRREGARDLESS
    I told them that irregardless of what you read in books, they's some members of the theatrical profession that occasionally visits the place where they sleep. —Ring Lardner, The Big Town, 1921
    Origin of IRREGARDLESS
    probably blend of irrespective and regardless
    First Known Use: circa 1912



    Just sayin' ;-)

    Yes, well, that was certainly worth the time you spent researching it, wasn't it?

    Some people might think the owner is easier to deal with than a broker of sort.

    My point being that it is superfluous. A for sale item should be just "For Sale," there is a direct assumption that the person selling it has the legal right to sell it.

    Typically that would be the case I would think. However I could still see why a sign saying for sale by owner would be useful.


    Lets say If someone is selling a vehicle outside their house and puts a for sale by owner sign on it. The interested person can reasonably assume they can walk up to the house to ask questions and/or make a deal on the vehicle.
    However if someone sells their vehicle at a vacant lot or other location then they should just put a for sale sign with a phone number as a contact.

    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Has "old school" been mentioned yet? It's been my experience that someone claiming to be "old school" is really saying that they are unwilling to learn, over-confident in their own abilities, and often just plain ol' lazy. Starting to edge up on that age when being "old school" seems to be the default explanation for why someone doesn't know anything about anything that's happened in the last decade, I'm wary. I'd hate to be "old school" myself, without realizing it. ;)

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    And, by the way, For Sale By Owner in real estate (and other broker-assisted sales) means that there are no realtor/broker fees. It has a real, tangible meaning, though I suppose you could say "For Sale Directly By Owner With No Realtor/Broker Fees" if you wanted to...

    Only 30 seconds or so with google. Irregardless, I was just pointing out it is a word, just a non-standard one. :)
