Words at Play : Seen & Heard: Nine Conflicts and One Compliment

#4: Gregarious

Definition:

: enjoying the company of other people

Seen & Heard:

"I was stopped by a police officer a few months ago and he said I was acting 'gregariously.' Confused by what he meant, I asked him to define the word. He said 'gregariously means that you are driving without care.' Seems he needs to look up definitions before using them! This comment made after he had already accused ME of not being able to speak English! The judge dismissed all charges after a written declaration was submitted regarding the officer's actions and misinformation on the ticket." – Beverly McNight
