Grammar Police

I have a confession to make.

I am a card-carrying member of the Grammar and Spelling Police.

It drives me bonkers to read a blog (or anything else) with spelling mistakes and poor grammar. It takes all my self-control not to post corrections. I can't stand it. I even sit in church (shhhh!) and wish that the pastor would have had me do some editing before he got up to speak in church, most Sundays. (I know this means I have some serious attitude adjustment to do. God and I are working on this, I promise.)

Phew! I feel better, having that off my chest. I was just reading a blog in which the author used "except" instead of "accept" several times and couldn't take it anymore. I had to fess up.

I think I need to read Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation again. It will do my spirit good.

  1. I'm glad that you try to exhibit some self control. You would probably have a field day correcting my blog! :)
