Today I have read two different advice columns where the writer said they felt like a third wheel.
NO! NO! NO!
The phrase is FIFTH wheel. FIFTH! A third wheel can be useful, a fifth wheel cannot! I know that there are things out there with five wheels, but mostly they could get by on four. That is what the phrase means! So you feel like a FIFTH wheel!
And while we're here, irregardless is NOT a word! And we all need to start slapping people who use it.
Please help me stop the idiocy!
