    This directive is coming from “top of the house”.

    It’s coming from the attic?

    Well, a new one for me -- beyond the "guest vs customer" thing -- is that my son, a psychologist, apparently has clients, not patients.

    Huh.

    Veterinarians have both clients and patients. The client is the one with a wallet and the patient is the one wearing a collar and leash.

    @Scipio that description could also work for the psychologist.

    🤔😃

    @MomofJandL I forgot about "methinks." I don't like that term either!

    I remembered my absolute MOST irritating- "leaving to pursue other interests" when someone has been fired.

    While no one in my house besides me seems to hear the distinction, the use of the non-word "intregal," or "intrecal/intrical," when one intends "integral".

    Imagine having educators punctuate statements to you in this manner. Makes one's skin cells want to slough away from the bone en masse.

    Aspiration, aspirational.

    If you're commited to achieving something, call it a goal.
