Well, AT to me, means Appalachian Trail, but it doesn't have city limits!
Sharkey, there seems no limit to the usage of the terminal "at" in these parts. grrr
I'm over here! Can you see me?!!Pearl
Perhaps it only means that your are at the city limits.
Pearl, I do! Monday through Friday. And I laugh with you. With you.Chuck, or at the limits of my patience.
I think the new vernacular is "Where you at?"
Lin, I think I am a patient person, but I get so ever-loving tired of it. I hear it everywhere, yes, yesterday from the pulpit. "Here's where we are at."My one-time response to "Where you at?" was "Right before (or in front of) the at" gets zero traction, blank looks.Sigh.
There is a book that was written for uptight people such as the one who lives close to where Tipton is at. Title: "Bad English: A History of Linguistic Aggravation" Author: Ammon Shea
Vee, funny, isn't it, how those who support the upholding of standards are the ones who get the most ridicule?I am pedantic. There's a pejorative.
Vanilla, funny how the standards have changed over the years, but purists always attempted to uphold the standards of their times.
Vee, If no one mans the ramparts, the Huns and the Vandals will breach the wall, and all is lost. AAAIIIEEEE! *gurgle* (too late)
