Yes, my teachers in school always corrected us: don't say the and. It
was considered incorrect english, like saying ain't. (And thus it was
considered low-class, coarse, crass -- ignorant).
It wasn't a to MAY to, to MAH toe, pe CAN pe CAHN thing -- it was just
said to be wrong, lazy.
What's the argument for leaving the "and" in? Is it supposed to be lazy
to leave it out? Or ignorant?
