I'm such a grammar snob....... I went to a particular cycling association's website, really just looking for a map, not to join their group or anything. But their website and all associated postings were so fraught with spelling errors that I clicked out. Even the map has terrible misspellings on it. Says a certain rule will be "strickley enforced." Don't they get the red squiggly lines like I do? I could attribute this snobbery to the fact that I'm an English teacher..........
.....but I have to admit that I was this way long before I started that career. In fact, (God forgive me), when I was a teenager and my mother and I were in church together, whenever the pastor made a grammatical error (and he made tons of them), Mom and I made eye contact with each other all the way across the sanctuary. No wonder I've been told I'm on the express train to hell.
I asked the woman at the Publix bakery to fix the writing on my sister's birthday cake. The cake was intended for three family members, so I asked that it say "Happy Birthday, Y'all." They had spelled it "ya'll." The lady looked at me like I was crazy when I asked her to move the apostrophe. So I told her MY SISTER was the grammar snob!!!!!!!!
I'm not this judgmental about most things, just spelling and grammar. Sigh. But I don't correct my husband, so maybe that can earn me some points back.
