Blogspiration (16): The Cough-a-loff-a-gus
Blogspiration is a Brand Spankin' New weekly meme hosted by both GrowingUp YA and Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers and writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation and just a little SOMETHING.
You've probably already seen this picture but holy hell, every time I come across it I can't help the laughter. It's too good. I always correct spelling errors in work memos or emails from by boss. Luckily for me, they take it in good spirits. And more than one of them has sent me this picture. I don't claim to be perfect when it comes to language rules however I DO think people should exercise a basic understanding. In my mind, not knowing the difference between the 'there's', the 'to's' and 'bought/brought' just really isn't acceptable.
So what about you? Is there anything you guys see that just hurts your brain? And do you ever have the compulsion to STOP THE GRAMMAR OFFENDER IN THEIR TRACKS? Or do you suffer your literary allergy silently and try not to gag on that lump of word vomit trying to explode out of you?
