The Imperial WE is never acceptable...


Just in case you didn't know, the imperial "WE" is never acceptable. (And the use of "WE" can often be misconstrued as such.) For example,

  • We should do our homework.
  • We should take out the trash.
  • We really shouldn't wear spandex, should we?
  • We need to mop the floor.
  • Are we having a bad day?
  • We should practice our handwriting.
  • We should bag the meat separately from the vegetables.
  • We should finish the projects we start.
  • We should clean our rooms.
  • We need a haircut.
  • It's about time we get a vasectomy.
