    Restaurant menus are always good for random apostrophes and spelling mistakes.

    Jack Daniel's
    Potato's
    Egg's Benedict

    And on one recently... 'Fillet Mignon'

    I see that all the time. It doesn't bother me that much tbh. Technically its wrong i know, but they're just using the English word instead of the French one, still means the same thing.

    I hope this hasn't already been asked, but I couldn't read through 800+ posts to find out!

    Is it "used to" or "use to"? As in, I use/d to have long hair.
    TIA!

    Used to. . (keeps fingers crossed that no one comes in and tells me I've been wrong all these years )

    ETA just did some googling, and found a case I hadn't thought of. If you're saying that you DIDN'T or DID have long hair, then you use use to.
    So eg. 'I DIDN'T use to have long hair' or 'I DID use to have long hair'. Otherwise it's 'I used to have long hair'. HTH!!!

    Used. It's past tense, so it's 'used'.

    The only time you should say 'use to' is, for example: "An eggflip is what I use to flip eggs."

    But they're mixing it with the French, which just makes me sad...

    And it makes me question how good the chef / restaurant is too. Doesn't matter for casual places, but it did put me off one restaurant that was supposed to be a nicer one. (I admit to being as much a foodie as I am a... erm... 'spell-y'...)

    Grammar is important. Capital letters are the difference between "helping your Uncle Jack off a horse" &"helping your uncle jack off a horse"
