Now I'm confused ... because it IS a sweeper!
I also go batty when people refer to their "blinker" instead of a "turn signal". (I bet it's a regional thing because no one around here calls it a "blinker" but it seems like I hear it in all the shows out of California.) If you ever get a ticket for failing to use these, I'm sure it's a "turn signal violation" not a "blinker violation".
And is this a regional thing, too? Another one that I never hear people use the term around here, but it's used in the movies and on TV shows ..... The little machine that automatically changes the channel on your TV is a "remote" or "remote control" .... not a "clicker". aaaauuuggghhhh!!
(wow, I had no idea my list was so long! I'll try to shut up now!)
