University of the Wrong Word

For the last few weeks I’ve been tortured by a television commercial for the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW), a private Catholic university in San Antonio. In the commercial, a graduate praises the university.

Toward the end of her pitch she says, “These are the types of things that have made myself and my business a success.”

Really? Wow.

Here’s a link to UIW’s other mention in this blog.

Maybe the myself was written by an Irish person?
In Ireland reflexive pronouns are used far more frequently than in standard English, e.g. "How are you?" "Not too bad, and yourself?".
