  • Why do we park on driveways and drive on parkways??
     


    I'm an English teacher and this kind of back-a$$ language bugs me!!! (but so does the word back-a$$ since it is redundant)
     


    I'm gearing up for school to start and it's getting ugly!!!

  • I've never heard anyone call the road you drive on a park way, maybe it is a States thing
