well…technically now there’s two…i spent about 20 minutes typing up my pet peeve, went to publish the post, and blogger deleted it. i HATE blogger. it loses way too many of my posts.
anyway, on to the actual pet peeve…
it’s windCHILL people, not winSHIELD.
i can’t stand it when people, like the dj i heard on the radio this morning, use this word improperly. example: “It’s so cold today. it’s -50 with the windshield.”
no, buddy. windshield is the big piece of glass sitting between you and the pavement.
and it’s sooo cold today. it’s -19c (that’s -2f). and it’s probably like -80 with the windchill.
