…Because if you text and drive, you could accidentally miss a letter and end up with something like this:
Wait. That was wrong. Of course what I meant to say was that texting and driving is dangerous.
I wonder what Idaho United Credit Union would have to say if they knew that I snapped this picture while I was behind the wheel. Crap, I did it again. Maybe I should have titled this post, “Grammaniac is a bad influence.”
Anywho, long story short: Don’t text and drive. The end.
The city of Meridian, Idaho, just lost a lawsuit against the construction company that built its City Hall building in 2008–a lawsuit that will cost a total of nearly $4 million. One angry Meridian citizen decided to speak out against William Nary, the City Attorney, by painting some simple rants on some boards and attaching them to a trailer on the side of the road. Not only is their rant a little, oh, disorganized, but they forgot there is an “e” in “attorney.”
Pat, I'd like to buy an E. What? It'll cost me $4 million?!?!?!!
There is a job posting in The Idaho Statesman‘s classifieds for a “High School Principle.” I remember this one from high school English class: it’s principal because the principal is your “pal.” Cheesy as it is, it’s the truth, and I certainly hope one of the job qualifications is knowing the difference between principle and principal.
I’m five episodes away from finishing the entire series of That ’70s Show on Netflix. I was about to start episode 196 when my boyfriend and I got sidetracked converting light years into inches (no, I am not joking). Not only did I fulfill my nerd quota for the day, but I also happened to notice a pretty stupid grammatical error on the screen while I was deep in thought about 9.462304521054039 to the 61st power:
I was pretty surprised to discovers this.
Honestly, I’m surprised this is the second time I’ve caught Netflix committing such an obvious grammatical crime. It’s such a large corporation, you’d think they’d be willing to hire a decent editor…
