    Hysterical! I am NOT a college graduate, but my parents would not allow me to speak the way the general population does. (or did!) I am appalled by the way my nieces and nephews butcher the language, even AFTER graduating from college. However, not being a “grammar Nazi,” I will not correct them, as that would be a violation of etiquette. That being said, I must add that most are not confused by the use of “I feel badly.” When I say it, no one thinks I have a poor tactile sense. Well stated.
