You know, sometimes I think that I’ll never find another pet peeve. Then I end up searching lowes.com for an ice maker (don’t ask). While searching for ice makers, here is what popped up instead:
Ooh, I hate it when people call it ice tea. It is not simply tea made of ice — it is tea that has had been iced and therefore iced tea.
At times, it seems like more people are saying ice tea than iced tea, at least up here in the northeast. (I’m pretty sure that sweet tea is the term preferred in the southern and midwestern states.)
The fact that either Lowes or the manufacturers spelled this wrong only perpetuates this myth.
Have you noticed this?
