Happy Friday everyone! I’m excited to be writing my first official QG blog post! Here in the QualityGal office all of us work really closely together and we’ve realized there are certain grammatical (and otherwise) pet peeves we all have in common. Thankfully, our wonderful writers (you guys!) are fantastic about watching your grammar and spelling before submitting your articles to be edited. However, in an age where the Internet is a primary form of communication between peers you come across a lot of people who, simply put, can’t or won’t write well. I try to ignore it most of the time; some of my best friends write like 10 year olds, but there are a few mistakes that drive me a little bit crazy.
A LOT – Two words. I know that. You know that. But apparently some people have a hard time with this. It used to drive me insane, until Allie Brosh saved my sanity with her hilarious post about the mythological Alot… and a few other things.
It can be found here -> The Alot is Better Than You at Everything <-
Read it if you so desire. I think most grammatically conscientious people will appreciate the humor. Who knows, maybe it will save you from wanting to cry the next time your BFF pretends that apostrophes don’t exist. Are there any specific pet peeves you have, grammatical or otherwise? Share so we can laugh at you commiserate with you!
