I had a lady come into work today and talk to me about how her grocery shopping went and in her sentences she used a word wrong. I am not the grammar kind I never use words the right way and normally don't care how other use them but this time it bothered me. Maybe it was because I was giving a 90 minute massage at 9 in the morning and wished I could go back to sleep so I was a bit more temperamental than normal or because I was stuck in the room with her for 90 min while she told the hour long story using this work in the wrong way. She kept saying "I needed less apples than what i got at the store because now I'm left with extra" It believe she should say I needed fewer apples because now I have to many. The rule is: "fewer" is normally for things you count like 1 apple 2 apple, and "less" is for things you measure like less water will make it thicker: "fewer apples", "less water".
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Jacob is normally the one of us that uses the correct grammar 18/5 I'm more like 5/1 instead of 24/7
