Me: Why did they use that awful photo of Mary Jo in that facebook posting? If she sees that, she won't take any more photos with you.
[Mary Jo is a friend of mine who agreed to be in campaign photos with Primo.}
Primo: I don't know. I am staying out of the facebook photos.
Primo: I'm letting that go. I don't have time for that.
Me: That's a big step for you!
Primo: Yes, but I still have to be involved in the text. [The campaign manager] isn't very good with grammar.
Primo: That's what I had to spend all that time on the other day. He had written a sentence in the singular but had used "their."
Me: Yeah, that's a pretty common usage.
Primo: It's wrong. I won't have it on my campaign literature.
Me: Uh huh.
Primo: So I had to rewrite the sentence. The only ways to handle this situation are to use "his or her" or to rewrite in the plural. I refuse to use just "his" because it's sexist and I won't use "her" because it's affected and "his or her" is awkward. So I rewrote it in the plural.
