Forget the hoarders, clean up your grammar!

If you’ve ever watched Hoarders, you know how much effort can go into cleaning up the home of one single hoarder. It’s too bad the same amount of effort isn’t expended on editing the episodes. The following is a screen capture from Season 2, Episode 10:

Let’s go back to Grammar 101 for a second, shall we? This statement describes Tra as being affected by two separate things: 1) The pressure of the day, and 2) Unsolicited advice. Given that fact, the caption should read “The pressure of the day and all the unsolicited advice are taking a toll on Tra.”

The less critical version of my inner grammar nazi, however, focuses on the BLATANT error in the statement. The possessive form of “its” should NOT HAVE A FREAKING APOSTROPHE!

Golly gosh.

One thought on “Forget the hoarders, clean up your grammar!

  1. Saw this episode — I love “Hoarders”. I remember this and it bugged the shit out of me at the time. It’s t.v., for God’s sake. They can’t hire someone who knows how to spell and check for proper grammar? It’s not a live show — they actually have time to proofread and get it right.
