So do most people so don’t be quick to label yourself stupid.
For all intents and purposes, this phrase causes confusion!

@Steampunkbride: I always wondered what it actually meant as is never made much sense to me!
At least i didnt think it was ‘for all in tents on purpose’

Oh man, we all have a word or phrase or two that we thought was something completely wrong! Now it’s gonna bug me all day until I come up with ones I’ve heard incorrectly. If I remember, I’ll come back.

@ChocolateLime: I guess I thought the same things because that is what I have always heard people say and what people have written to me. It’s not a phrase I use personally, so oops.
Reminds me of “Friends” when Joey talks about something being “A Moo Point” – because it’s like what a cow says…it’s moo. LOL. Versus being “a moot point”

@Ms_Purple: haha, i dont think i have seen this one!!
luckily like Ms Purple said, its not a phrase i generally use. In fact i do not think i ever have but i heard it whilst out today and had to google to see if this man was right when he said it.

@ChocolateLime: I had a friend who thought the saying “take for granted” was “take for granite”

Haha and the funny thing about it is when you say it out loud, you can incorrectly say “for all intensive purposes” and sometimes it sounds correct.
Up until about a year ago I thought the phrase was “play it by year” instead of “play it by ear.

@ChocolateLime: ‘For all in tents on purpose’ hahahaha, this made me laugh out loud. I thought it was intensive purposes too! I would never have known the truth if you didn’t post this!

@ChocolateLime: oh geezeee….we all make silly mistakes. Don’t feel bad!
On my 3rd date with my SO…at the end of the date I said something like ‘And now the date has commenced’….because it’s used for terms of graduation, I thought it meant the ‘ending’ of something…
Turns out it means the ‘beginning’.
