This is kind of wonky, but consider any court case, such as "Roe v. Wade." The "v." is short for versus. You're supposed to say out loud "Roe versus Wade," not "Roe v. Wade."

Not really a pet peeve for me but it is funny the way Scott Wildcat always says "verse" instead of "versus" on Boscoe Boys.

Our small dog is getting pretty old and doesn’t tolerate cold as much. He seems to really appreciate having a sweater on during cold days.

Yeah, I mean depending on the dog some simply aren't built for the cold and/or it's ok for them. Like dressing up a husky probably not great. Dressing up a short haired dachshund when it's 10 degrees, probably cruel if didn't.

Which makes me wonder if the youths even know what the v is for when they say something like I can take you 1 v 1.

My pet peeve on this is in regards to sporting events.  Back in my day, "on" was used in place of the "v".  Like 3 on 3, or 7 on 7.  Really grates me when I hear "3 v 3".    :cyclist:
On a side note, do they say "shirts v skins" now?

It's been a hot minute since I participated in shirts versus skins, so I can't say.

You say "shirts and skins"

My theory is the use "3v3" instead of "3 on 3" is due to the growth of soccer.

I know it’s already been covered ITT but for some reason the less v. fewer thing is getting more annoying to me lately, which is probably a sign of getting old?

"Tay Tay".

No idea why I hate it when people call her that so much. At the parade I saw an adult woman with a sign that said, "Tay Tay is my hero".

Am I responsible for that? Because I know I've opined on the subject. It's not really difficult for people to wrap their brains around.

Probably. Once it was brought to my attention…all of the sudden it’s just a whole nother one of those things I can’t un-know.

Fair point. I should have less pet peeves.  :facepalm:

Does "more" work as the opposite for both "less" and "fewer"? Or have I been doing that wrong?

I wouldn’t worry about it. Even the less/fewer distinction is less of a rule and more of a peeve.

More or less. (to answer non-jokingly, yes it does.)

This may be too specific, but to my best ability I avoid any and all movie trailers. I want to know little to nothing about it outside of director, actors, writers, etc. And my pet peeve is when people, just assuming I haven't been living my life like this for as long as I can remember, say crap like "well let me just say one thing about it" like I don't know what I'm talking about when I say I want to know ZERO THINGS about it. And then they try to interrupt my refusal by telling me the one thing they just HAVE to tell me.
