Do you think Neil Gaiman ever read’s Amanda Palmer’s blog and is like “God dammit woman, use some grammar! You are the wife of an universally renowned writer. Hit the shift key! Its right fucking there!”
And then Amanda Palmer divorces him because that is an unnecessarily violent reaction to writing in all lower case. Damn Neil, calm down.
Why Are You Stupid?
I’m not a grammar Nazi by any stretch of the imagination. I make mistakes, I don’t care when other people make mistakes. It happens. Sometimes I’ll pick on people, and I’ll definitely point it out if there’s a mistake on something official that last forever. But there is one thing that I will point out EVERY god damn time and that is putting the dollar sign after the number.
People, it is not 60$, it’s $60. This pisses me off so bad because its not like there aren’t examples of this fucking EVERYWHERE! I learned this shit in first fucking grade, and there’s money all over the internet, and every god damn place you look!
Seriously, be more observant.
So I don’t get upset when people make grammatical errors. There are three forms of “there.” I can understand people getting them mixed up. It happens.
If there’s one thing I can’t abide, it’s putting the fucking $ AFTER the number. It is fucking $5. Not 5$. It is never EVER 5$. Sometimes, there can be their or they’re or there. Oh I mixed them up. But when the fuck is it ever 5$? Never. That’s when.
So I’m pretty sure you’ve all heard me rant about this before. But today it’s a bit different. I had a new follower so I checked out their blog.
First entry on the page…. 65$. Ok. Obviously he’s stupid. TWO entries down, there’s a picture of a sale sign in a super market for $2.69.
I blocked him because I really don’t want someone looking at my blog who’s brain has clearly melted right the fuck out of his god damn skull.
