Human pet-peeve number 233: CLAIMING OWNERSHIP
What is this thing people do with claiming human ownership? Say you’re in a position of power, I don’t know why you’re there, but you are. And you refer to the “lesser forms” as yours. You refer to people as “My man” or “My guy”. It’s not right. You sound ridiculous.
Tech Guy: I need to clear space in order to work with the server.
Person of power: Ok, I’ll have to get my guy to let you in to that room.
Person 1: Who can clear some space as well? Is there maintenance or something?
Person of power: Yes, but we have to wait. My guy who normally does this for me is out.
He’s not yours. He’s not anyone’s. Shut up.
