    As I age verbal laziness irritates me more and more. My current nerve grater is people pronouncing it "fer" instead of "for".

    Of course not! It's coulda woulda and shoulda if you're writing. Or verbally, if you're Brando.

    Coulda, woulda and shoulda are acceptable in informal communications. Or when Brando says them.

    Like I said, I dont have a problem calling some 18 year old's men and other 30 year old's boys. Everyone has their own line in the sand.
    I just dont envision myself or any of my friends saying, hey look at those males over there, its either boys or men.
