    A few years ago, some people began adding an ess to anyway, thereby creating substandard English usage. Sort of like those who add "ir" to regardless, making another substandard English word. Occasionally, a newscaster can be heard saying "irregardless" and while the person using it may not be uneducated, he/she sounds as if they are and co-workers roll their eyes behind the person's back. Same with "anyways", since there is no reason at all for making the word plural, especially since there is no such word when there is an ess added. When I was a senior in college a friend had to make a speech and used "irregardless" in his presentation. Yikes! I felt obligated to tell him and did, but, tried to be gentle. My niece recently said "anyways" when we were conversing and I hope my reaction causes her to rethink its addition to her vocabulary. heheh

    End of lesson.... oops... I mean end of post. :D :D :D
