I lost my iPad today. Spent over an hour retracing my steps and finally found it at a fabric store. I was in a complete panic by that point because I need it to run credit cards tomorrow and was already plotting how I could afford to replace it TODAY.
So, when I finally got there and saw it on their counter, I exclaimed "Oh my god, is that my iPad? You've saved my life!" And more of the same. Everyone else was smiling and happy for my reunion, but one woman asked me "could you please stop saying that?"
I find myself wondering why that's offensive. I hear it everywhere, and with well over 50 years on this planet, I can't recall anyone complaining about it. Everyone else seemed to interpret it as the relief that it was. Is it the using his name in vane thing? Would "thank god" have been different? I'm honestly a little puzzled, and wish I'd thought to ask her, "do you mind telling me why you find that offensive?" but its too late now.
