I had to use all my strength to not laugh at people who would ask for the distemperment vaccine for their dog and then ask if it helps with improve their behavior.
Wow. You just cannot make this stuff up, can you?
I had one employee that used the word ideal in place of idea (both singular and plural forms). At first I thought maybe she did not know when to use "ideal" or "ideally" but then I heard her say something about how meeting guys is so hard and her ideal would be a guy that would take care of her and still let her be independent. Let us not get too sidetracked by that part of the conversation...
Anyhow, that showed me she had some idea of what an "ideal" situation would be yet she would still say things like "I had an ideal about how we could organize the cabinets." or "little kids come up with the cutest ideals!" Blew me away considering she was constantly reminding everyone she had 2 bachelor's degrees (one of which was for teaching high school-yikes!) and is completing nursing school so she is VERY educated. Um, okay. Still don't know how to use the word "ideal" though.
