    One that gets me is when dividing items ..when it's two people it's divided "between"
    When it's three or more it's divided "among"...
    How often the wrong term is used...

    Weighing in:

    I am not fond of the term Grammar Nazi. Since the whole point is to correct a person using improper grammar or to 'call out' another person's grammatical error wouldn't the term Grammar Gestapo be more fitting. The Gestapo were more fixated on policing than the Nazis and it adds a pleasing alliteration.

    You sound like a grammar nazi
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?
