Call me anal, but I have problem with businesses telling people that some things are pre-owned when they actually mean previously owned or, to put it simply, used. Pre-owned is SO not used! Pre-owned would mean the exact opposite of used: new. Why? Because the prefix pre- means earlier; before; prior to; preparatory; preliminary; in advance. So pre-owned would mean prior to being owned, i.e. new.
I wouldn’t even go into what I like to call the Great Canadian Aversion to Apostrophe in Business Names. Tim Hortons is supposed to be Tim Horton’s, Sobeys is supposed to be Sobey’s, and the list goes on and on. But I’ll just save the rant for some other slow blogging day.
