Hold up, did I just see that phrase used seriously? Seriously?! “For all intensive purposes” – you know you’re in trouble when the Urban Dictionary has a definition.
Nonsense, it means nothing. Its what people say when they really mean to say “for all intents and purposes”.
Should I even care this erroneous phrase was used? It’s just a mute point right?
