Here’s a rant for the day:
PLEASE, PEOPLE, STOP MIS-USING THE WORD IDEAL!!!
Improper: “Hey, that’s a good ideal!” (referring to a thought)
Proper: “This is an ideal way of of getting your point across”
or: “I refuse to compromise any of my ideals”
The correct word for the improper example above is IDEA.
Dictionary on the words:
It’s just like how people get sense and since wrong, or to and too in the wrong places (NOT me TO! – It’s me TOO!).
