I find this misused by editors in newspapers in their personal columns. And their proofreaders don't know any better.
    Another one I hear often is: "Her and her mother went shopping." Her didn't go shopping. She did.
    Let's cut this off here. I could go on and on. I'm so happy when I find other like minded people.
    How do you feel about this one? "It's Frank and I's anniversary."

    thank you Edie, for "if you can't spell correctly, you can't speak correctly". The opposite is also true. If you do not speak correctly, you cannot spell correctly. Having taught explicit phonics in my 2nd grade classroom, I often had to tell the kids that we do not speak well anymore, and we have to spell things right no matter how things are said. It makes it difficult, but they did seem to understand...... and they wanted to spell correctly!
