I was just hammered

Posted by Sathyaish on March 16, 2004

I was just corrected on a usage I do not think is wrong. I was just being liberal. Kindly advise.

Dear Sathyaish
I didn't know people stayed on telephone extensions. That is a very funny usage? Going by all the established English norms, it is an incorrect usage. English is a language that is constantly evolving; and it is ideal to be tolerant of novel usages; but this usage is too far-fetched to be treated correctly.
Thanks
Harinder

Dear Harinder,
I stay on a shared extension 108. However, I would personally come up to you for the errors I think I spotted.
