Quote HOT PINK: I also care. I grew up in a different time where we were taught proper grammar starting in elementary school on through high school. Another grammatical error that is constantly abused is ending a sentence with the word AT. Every time I did that in high school, my teachers would always respond, "It's behind the at." It didn't take me long to stop doing it.
Maybe it is fruitless to be so concerned about speaking "proper English" and using correct grammar. But, I believe in teaching children good manners, having respect for others and, yes, the importance of good grammar.
Dang, just realized I used the word AT at the end of a sentence. Shame on me! ;)
