I would simply love to get into an argument over that with you, my opinion is VERY strong on the matter

I''m not sure what you're problem is, I don't care that it is "official", that's my point, ie. he came back saying it was official not me and I'm not arguing it's official

I wonder what he's getting called out for on his message board

actually in a funny enough twist he agreed that it "might seem rude" and that he'll have to remember not to use it

Calm down you drama vultures

they/their aren’t “officially” plural, though. they have a very longstanding and well-documented use as singular pronouns

i’m just saying that (in conversations like the one you’re describing) you don’t even need to concede that you don’t care that the dictionary definition of they/their holds them to be plural—because it doesn’t!

Well, my exact response to his "But isn't 'they/their' officially plural?" was "Some say that, but language changes"

Well, they clearly don't know what they're talking about, and apparently neither do you.

sounds like a good response

now you should swing the conversation toward his idea that words have “official” meanings because THAT.....is a tickler

Now another coworker sent around this link with the subject line "uni has changed since my day"

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... rsity.html

Not sure how to craft my response to this, but I do want to make one.

My colleague has no idea how to interpret weather forecasts (and is just generally terrible when it comes to clickbait weather headlines). She's always sending mass emails warning of impending snow and will turn up in a long winter coat and snow boots because she doesn't realise that forecasts for remote Scotland do not apply to London. She just sees words like 'Arctic blast' or 'blizzard' somewhere on a news site and reacts to that.

We have been having a 30 minute discussion about whether we should put information on one page or another, despite me having already given my thoughts and then saying "But I'll defer to your opinion, I am not tied to this in a large way" and then everybody acting like I'm being a pain in the ass, even though I keep politely saying that I really don't care.

Boss just took me aside to call some other employee a bitch (my boss - she's a pistol, that one). I said, "This is not okay" and left. Later, she sheepishly texts me to say, "I meant she was a bitch in work, not a bitch in life."

Oh.
