Another in a long series on How the English Are Ruining Our Language

Here’s a recent tweet by a Londoner:

Once I accidentally queue-barged a man in a supermarket. I apologised profusely for not realising they were in a queue. They then apologised for making a big deal about nothing. I then apologised for their apology. Then someone behind us apologised for asking us to move up.

As quoted in the Guardian

Here is a woman writing about a specific, identified man as if he were more than one person.  Apparently, all British schoolchildren are being taught to do this.
