I beg your pardon

I had the perfect chance today to address the "beg the question" issue. A colleague at the office asked me to analyze a client's response to a question...was the reply "circular?"

I replied that yes, it was circular and thanked her because it gave me a chance to say, "it addressed a pet-peeve of mine and begged the question."

As I left her office I was surrounded by three associates who'd heard me say, "one of my pet-peeves."

"We want to hear about [Scooter's] pet-peeves. This is always fun."

Glad I could provide so much entertainment.

I think the title should be "I beg your question".
