Three of my grammar pet peeves:

-- He's taller than me instead of he is taller than I (am tall).
-- How are you? I'm good. (as opposed to bad?) I'm well, or I'm fine, and I do good.
-- If a student wants a copy of their transcript, they should ask the secretary.
About thirty or so years ago, it became politically incorrect to use the masculine pronoun, he, to cover male and female subjects. I've been accused of being pedantic, but it gets my hackles up to use a plural pronoun to replace a singular noun. Why can't we invent gender-neutral singular pronoun, or else use it in place of they?
