Learn Frickin' English

It's bad enough that people can't seem to spell.  But damn, TRY...and while you are at it, learn the proper words.

Two recent examples that just annoy me.
- 1. Chick talking about the people who live around her, in a derogatory manner: "She, like most of her elk..."  Elk?  You live in a zoo?  The work is ilk.

- 2. Guy, talking about stupid people, trying to talk down to them, referring to something as being in "easier to understand for you lamen".  When I asked him what the bloody fuck that was supposed to mean, he responded that it meant "stupid people who don't know".  Apparently, somewhere in his street-wise lump of Play-Doh™ he calls a brain, he had decided that "laymen" was related to "lamers".

Humans...sheesh.  Sometimes, I wish they all had one neck...right here between my hands...yes, I'm going through one of my very misanthropic moods, lately.
