who/that

I have a new pet peeve (other than snow days – which actually even though I complain, haven’t been too horrible).

People are who; Things are that.

My friend that has a cleaning lady is lucky. No. No. No. My friend who has a cleaning lady is lucky. Yes. Yes. Yes.

I don’t often find people saying who for an inanimate object, but that for people has been jumping out at me lately. Making me twitchy.

We don’t want a twitchy mom at home who is jealous of her friend with a cleaning lady while the children are around. OK?
