Who or That?

I saw an orange yard sign that said “YOU’VE BEEN TEA-P’D,” with a handwritten message that said it was sent by “Someone that loves you.” A lovely thought, but I wish the sender had been “Someone who loves you,” instead. Who is for people; that is for everything else.

And if you think “people” and “persons” are simple, just wait for next week’s “Words, Words, Words” post!

By the way, kudos to Infusion Tea in College Park, Florida, for coming up with the idea to provide packages of tea + tp, and to its customers who are doing something nice for local businesses and their neighbors.
