Overheard a couple talking on the bus this morning:
GIRL: I sent an e-mail to my two co-workers that ended with the phrase "much to my chagrin" and neither of them had heard of the word and didn't know what it meant. I mean I know that one of them reads books, amazing that she didn't know that word!
GUY: Yeah, I mean it's only 6 letters, not like you used "superfluous" or something. Honestly I don't think I've ever used it in a sentence though. How is it spelled?
GUY: Haha, yeah I would have guessed S-H-O something... but I'm not very good at spelling.
