Dad was a High School/Univ Professor, who spent every mealtime correcting us kids' grammar. (Notice I said, "us kids, not "we kids.") Ingrained in us, old habits hard to break. Try to be flexible, but hate enduring journalism that reports "people 'that' instead of "people 'who.' " And of course the no longer necessary agreement in number - "when a kid wants to do....'they' should..." Singular noun? Plural pronoun? Kills me. Too hard, in this day and age of OMG's and fwiw's, to type/say "he or she..." Sigh
