Thank you!

 

I too thought the topic was about movie/television scripts and screenplays.

 

That is of interest to me, so I opened it.  Prescriptions never occurred to me solely from the thread title.  I thought I was the only one.

 

Oh well.

Oh my!  Did not realize using "scripts" or "lippie" makes one a "mean girl".

Re: I Don't Speak What Passes for English

I've known the word script (prescription) for decades, so it's nothing new to me.

 

If I come across something I've never heard before, I just look it up.  Advances in technology have made things so easy.  I wouldn't want to go backwards.

 

Not wanting to learn new things makes people "old", IMO.  (Sorry - in my opinion.)

When I speak of a medical prescription, I may shorten it to "scrip".  "Script" is something else to me.

 

When it's a written abbreviation, I use "RX".

@geezerette - Yes, you're correct.  I used it as written by the OP; however, I agree it is scrip.

 

I'd still know to what someone was referring, with or without the t.

@Trinity11 You are fortunate to have young people in your life.

But don't you dare call a poster out for spelling or grammar errors.  You will be told off and sent to the back of the room.  Smiley LOL


I don't mind when the posters make spelling or grammatical errors, but it drives me nuts when I read an article published by a newspaper or other journal and there are way too many grammatical mistakes.

 

" Him and his brother was caught driving a stolen car."  Yikes!!

 

They need proof readers and a better education.
