    You are correct, in the past I have done everything I can to stay away from that part of Georgia which was difficult when driving from Alabama to South Carolina.

    I'm certainly not qualified to critique others speech, but this uneducated redneck cringes when I see or hear my MBA thumping co-workers misusing the words lose and loose, and also when an update is needed on a project our team is working on and someone asks for advice instead of saying something like "please advise on status".

    My wife and I made the Spartanburg-to-Birmingham-to-Tuscaloosa-and-back-again drive for 2 years in the early 90's when I worked for a major manufacturer based in Spartanburg. We chose to take I-20 to I-85 and avoid I-285 because I-285 was a disaster route even back then.

    I am sure I-285 is worse now than it was back in the 80' and 90's when if you drove between 75-80 mph you were creeping along.

    I knew somebody in college that actually got a speeding ticket on 285. All of us were shocked and couldn't help but wonder just how fast was she going. She never told us, But my guess was 100+.

    Someone mentioned your and you're. I can't do a link due to language, but go to YouTube and do a search for you're vs. your.

    The language is fairly mild, but wanted to be careful.

    I do not like the phrase, "I need to reach out to him/her/them".
    No... If they are within arm's reach of you, just talk to them.
    If they are not within arm's reach of you; Just call, text, mail a letter, or send an e-mail to them.

    Personally, I don't really like the use of 'advise' as 'notify' or 'inform'

    I prefer the use of 'advise' as 'recommend'

    I thought of another one... people who use the word nauseous when they mean nauseated.
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.
