Filenglish

Recently read abominations of the English language:

Good morning! Rice and shine!


I went out to the beach old natural (au naturel)


Happy Nice Day! (Have a nice day!)


a. Where are you from?
b. I'm from the US.
a. Oh, so you're not here in the Philippines.

Um, you said from!

Here, it is pretty much "pick any preposition, nobody cares".


And to think at one time I taught English as a Second Language classes! The urge to correct is sometimes overwhelming!
