What’s in the overuse of “for me”?

 

This week in the Daily Telegraph there have been a number of letters regarding the use of the phrase:  “Can you just fill in this form for me?” I am not sure where the debate started but this drivel is often used in the surgeries of doctors and dentists and also in council offices.
