Pet Peeve




This only bothers me slightly, but I always seem to notice it. When I went to school the teacher seemed to think certain things were very very important. If you are inside it's called the floor. If you are outside it's called the ground. Now I hear a lot of people, and I am talking about things I watch on TV, referring to the floor as the ground. For instance, "it fell on the ground". If you're inside there ain't no ground around for it to fall on. To me I always associated ground and dirt as one and the same. Now, don't go getting all excited about my awful grammar and bad punctuations and I already know you ain't supposed to say, "ain't no". It's double negative or something. I also know that "ain't" ain't even a very good word to use.
Now what do you think about this? Should I just ignore it because maybe the floor is so dirty they can't tell the difference?

I agree. Their ain't be no ground inside. (How is that grammar)

And Aint IS in the dictionary...well, the new ones, not the ones from the 1920s that you are probably used to...LOL!!

Floor and Ground are NOT interchangable. Definitely, I agree!

And how about the word Supposedly? Which is fine, but some people say supposably...which is NOT a word.

oh, and I have many MORE!! Cora can attest to that!
