Seeing the following in blog posts and comments make me want to hunt down the perpetrators, bitch-slap them, turn their family into chattel and then burn down their houses with cleansing fire before salting the earth. I’d leave the miscreants with a copy of a good dictionary.
Correct: “We decided to rein in our household spending.”
Correct: “God save the Queen! Long may she reign!”
Burn it with fire: “The government needs to do more to reign in spending!”
Correct: “I hope I don’t lose this fencing match.”
Correct:”There is a cow loose in the upper pasture.”
Burn it with fire: “Ha ha! You guys are going to loose the big game”
