Another Grammar Question?

I am beginning to think that maybe it is me. But every time I see the word "as" instead of "Has" I get a little niggle in my mind.

"He as just gone over to the shops" instead of "He has just gone over to the shops". why a little thing upsets me I do not know. Do other people get these feelings?

I know I am not really in to grammar myself, I winced at school when my teacher used the phrase "Subject and Predicate" at the beginning of an English lesson. I still do not know what it means. So why does this irritate me?

Not that I give a damn, because I am off to bed with my mug of cocoa and my medication. Goodnight all!

I would have written "So that makes both john bunyan and myself correct" but that will undoubtedly start a new argument!

SillBill. You are correct about the various services. First the WRAF then the WAAF, during WW2, then the WRAF and finally all together in the RAF.

I friend of mine was an instructor at the WRAF Training School. At one time he claimed that every Pilot Officer in the WRAF had passed through his hands.
