  2. Oh, that is a pet peeve. Another thing that gets to me is when people mix up I and me. Such as, 'Can you please get a cup of tea for Sarah and I?"

    I have a friend who reads my blog solely to find typos and grammatical errors. I must admit, I kind of like the scrutiny!

  3. That old spell check helps another poor soul miss the boat again.

  4. BTW, I am soooo glad you have the links on your site because Nate's show was preempted in my area by the local mall burning down. The segments were great!!! I enjoyed every one and hope you get to do more. It was fun to get to hear you talk about it all on SRT too. Meg, "your" (haha) just as I imagined...someone I could be best friends with!

  5. My mother makes snarky proofreading comments on my blog. I'm not the only one in need of her services.

  6. There is a road construction sign on my way home from work that says "Thanks for your patients"...

  7. I actually paint signs and it can be easy to make a mistake when laying out the wording for the stencil. The scary thing about the sign in your post is how many people read it before it made its way to the store shelves and no one caught the mistake.

  9. UGH -now who is old and wise? Clearly not the person who painted the sign - one of my pet peeves! Sadly, the spell check on my phone often makes this mistake and it drives me CRAZY!

  15. This is irksome on so many levels.

    It's not bad enough that there are people in the world who make and buy this sort of crap to begin with, right? How fitting.

    File this along with decals of stick figure families on rear windows of vehicles, bumper stickers spouting political/religious views, and tattoos of cartoon characters.
