Set/sets can go either way. Some people/countries/regions treat a group of people as a single entity, which is what Keegan is going.

Even the small amount of cash I had in it.  Unfortunately, I had already canceled all my credit cards, and replaced my ID, and the wallet.  So I didn't have much use for it other than the ~ 20 bucks cash that was still in it.

Another lost and found story... But this one wasn't on the golf course... It dates back to when I was in college attending the University of Cincinnati back in the late 90's.  It was my senior year, and I lived off campus in an apartment on the west side.  It was a shady area, but had a good view of the city.  Anyway, one morning I had a pair of workout pants on that had some loose pockets.  It was early AM, and I was going to campus to get some work done, and my wallet must have fallen out of my pocket when I was getting in/out of the car?  It wasn't until later that day, that I realized that my wallet was missing. PO'd... I had to go and cancel all my bank cards, and replace everything - wallet, student ID, etc.  A few days later, and while at work, I told one of my supervisors about what happened.  And he said, why didn't you call downtown and ask the county if it was turned into lost and found.  I was like, is this guy crazy?  Like someone is going to turn my wallet into lost and found.  But he peaked my interest... So I called downtown.  Sure enough, after checking the lady had it in their lost and found items.  Come to find out, someone turned it over to a police officer, and they in-turn turned it into the lost and found at the city.  I drive down, and the lady hands me my wallet.  Everything was intact, cash and all.

Talk about Good Samaritans.

Small nitpick, but it is "piqued." a2_wink.gif

(Ps, I wrote rough as "ruff" recently, I was swiftly pulled on it! In my defence I had been drinking heavily and felt great shame in the morning!)

I just typed "put a kibosh on…" and then when I used the dictionary to make sure kibosh was the right word, it said "put THE kibosh on…".

 

I've always heard it as "a" and not "the" - what say the learned members of the Spelling and Grammar Errors Thread? :-) Are both correct? Just one?

I've always been under the impression it was "the."

You forgot the part about,"but what the **** do I know!"

Well, I'm not Canadian, and I'm from California, which is the only accent-neutral place on Earth, so I have no caveat b2_tongue.gif.

Sounding like a baked out Keanu Reeves isn't considered an accent then?

Okay, "the" wins.

I believe we speak "correctly" here.  What Veronica Corningstone refers to as "non-regional diction." ;) c2_beer.gif
