Signage and coinage.

What's wrong with signs and coins?

I also heartily agree with the person who nominated "myself" as the most
annoying word, which was actually my first choice. I see and hear that word
misused constantly, even in books. I really liked it when Mike Myers used it
in one of his Austin Powers movies. "Allow myself to introduce ... myself."
Hmmm. Something isn't right here.

One of the product managers here once asked me which was correct: "please
see Jane or I" or "please see Jane or myself". (Those weren't the actual
examples.) He seems very surprised when I told him "please see Jane or me"
was correct. I think people have a fear or the word "me" because it doesn't
sound formal enough.
