I am a grammar snob. Not that I am, in any way shape or form, GOOD at grammar.
Just read this blog for proof.
No, what I mean is when I spot a grammatical error in something I am reading I get all snobby and judgmental and feel sooooo superior that I found a mistake that the PROFFESIONALS made.
I only feel this way with printed material, a book, magazine, or newspaper.
(Okay, maybe online professional publications too.)
But I don’t get all judgey with blogs or other non-professional printings because, hey, I’m right there with ya’!
I could probably be one of the top ten worst spellers in history, if they ever compile a list. And I think I slept through all of my English classes in school.
What set me off on this tirade you may wonder?
In a magazine I came across this sentence, “I whither away without my friends camaraderie.’
Even as I type it Word highlights it as a misspelling!
Does this drive anyone else crazy? (Or is it just me? LOL)
