People, these days, are saying "never" when they should say, "did not."
"I never called you a hippopotamus today."
"I never ate the last rice krispie square."
or this one, actually heard on the radio:
"Authorities at Vancouver Airport never disciplined any of the staff involved in the tasering incident."
"Never" is for ever, a substantially long time. It is not for a single incident of not doing something, or even a day or a week, or even a year or more. It is for ever.
I wish people would just talk plain like thayre mamas larned them to.
question: why is this word worm stuck in my ear?
