Grammtikal errs

I was watching Miracle on 34th Street today.  Yes, I know it’s only the beginning of Sept, but I enjoy watching Christmas movies year round.  It makes me happy.

One thing that does not make me happy is when the writers make obvious grammatical errors!

The lawyer said, “I am going to defend you and I am going to prove that there is a Santa and that you are him.”

Um, no…you are going to prove that there is a Santa and that you are HE!  ARRG!  Turn the sentence around and say, “Him is you.”  It doesn’t make any sense.

It also grates on me like nails on a chalkboard when I call someone on the phone and I ask for someone and that someone is already speaking.  They say, “This is her/him.”  ACK!  No, you are SHE/HE!  SHE/HE IS YOU!

Okay, enough.  I’ll get off my soapbox now!

  1. I disagree!

    There’s a difference between formal usage and casual convesation.

    If someone ask you where Rob is, would you say “there’s he right there?”

    Here’s what should drive you crazy:

    when people say “I’m doing good” instead of “doing well.” ha ha

  2. “I’m done” instead of “I’m finished.”

    Anyway…I love White Christmas. I wore out my VHS watching the Adam & Eve number so many times. I love the dancing and singing… sigh. My other Christmas favorite is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. “Merry Christmas! Shitter was full!” A true favorite all year long.
