It don't matter, their gonna use it anyway. They're otta be a law.

ETA: I used to do transcription, and the hospital I worked for hired a new person. Of course, it was my job to oversee her work. She had been a schoolteacher so how bad could it be? We went around and around over alot. It was a word. She had always used it. I finally gave up. Just told her to make sure her initials were on the bottom of her documents.
