Which is not to say that I am not a language Nazi.
I want to slap people on television who do these things because they spread their bad habits:
pronounce the t in often
say did-dint, stoo-dent, or any other misguided attempt at diction which avoids the "(u)nt" sound.
begin a sentence with "meantime" rather than "In the meantime" or use them interchangeably with "meanwhile" when they actually mean different things.
the list goes on
Publix in Orange Beach AL has great fried chicken and taters. Their prices are too high on other things so I shop at Winn Dixie. Being a tourist/vacation town, Americans work in all retail stores.
I like my neighborhood Publix. They treat me well as a customer, never had a problem.
I'm still in North GA, just discovered Ingles, which displays a large sign at their entrance "AMERICAN OWNED"
