Who is Pete and why do people do things for his sake?
I frequently find myself saying, "For Pete's sake." Someone - I think it was one of my students - asked me who Pete was. When I said I didn't know, they asked me why I was talking about him if I didn't know anything about him. So I pose the question to you, my fellow Hubbers.
'Pete' is 'Peter', one of Jesus' apostles from the Bible. As some people find it offensive to use the lord's name in vain, "For Pete's sake" is often used as a politer alternative of saying "For God's Sake".
