How could I . . . not have known this before now?
Um, because, in spite of your vast and superior (and that's not sarcasm) knowledge of grammar, you're not omniscient. And when you (in the general "one" sense) believes that This Way is The Right Way, and is given no reason to question that (no arguments for Another Way, etc.) . . . well, you can follow this path to its end. Eh, and sometimes the more common bits of grammar come under the least questioning.
*huggles* It's ok. It's often good to be reminded that you (general sense) don't know everything; helps keep the mind open.
