  • 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

  • I have no idea. Why do we call apartments apartments when they are so close together?

  • No wonder people have so much trouble learning the English language! Half the time it makes no sense!
