Cave man language vs proper language
Comment by Maggie Jo on 18th November 2011
HA HA HA!!!

Claudette. I LOVE YOU TO BITS! You're hilarious.

I read this article before any comments were posted, and upon immediately noticing the grammatical error(s), I was thinking to myself, "Oh oh. Claudette's not going to like this one."

When I revisted this article and read the contributing comments regarding the lack of proper grammatical demonstration, I almost fell off my chair laughing. Not disrespectfully; but rather...enjoying the dialogue (which I thoroughly agree with, by the way).

In social networking, even I tend to "flip the lip"...but I must admit it drives me CRAZY when I hear a Colleague in my professional work environment talking on the phone saying..."Well, I didn't get no report."

WT?!? Ugh. Like fingernails on a chalkboard! It doesn't sound too good in a professional working environment, does it?

Thank you for remaining engaged in the mandate to encourage proper usage of our language. Perhaps you could contribute a little blog now and then with tips on improving our language in every day life. Maybe I can start one on lack of plain manners (my pet peeve).

I'm sure even we rednecks can learn to communicate properly. It can't be THAT hard, can it? Gulp.

Your right, Mr Peters, you ever see how the kids spell on that facebook ? What is wrong with our schools? It's like there not even trying.

I feel your pain, but grammar I fear is no long taught nor is it demanded of those who communicate information to us.
