You may think you know, but you have no idea!
Here are the top five sayings we get wrong most often. Are you guilty of mucking these up?
- “For all intensive purposes”: It’s actually “for all intents AND purposes.”
- “Nip it in the butt”: Sorry pal…the correct phrase is “nip it in the BUD.”
- “One in the same”: The correct way is “one AND the same,” which means two things are alike.
- “Case and point”: “Case IN point” is the proper way to say this phrase.
- “I could care less”: This one doesn’t even make sense! If you’re trying to imply you don’t care about something, you should say, “I COULDN’T care less.”
