What the heck does this mean...?

IIRC, Whom replaces and (sic):P object, while who replaces a subject. For example: Whom are you talking to? vs Who is talking to you? Few people will notice or care if you misuse who.

That's my understanding as well.

Or do you have any advice for what to call your in-laws (e.g. Mom/Dad or use their first names)? I never felt comfortable with Mom/Dad or their first names, so you know what I do, I NEVER refer to them directly! I just get around it. I am waiting for us to have a baby so I can just call them grandpa/grandma.


I call 'em by their first names, despite everyone else in the family (direct and married) using "pet" names. Just isn't my style & they deal perfectly fine with my difference.
