LESSONS in Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (this will be updated often)
The destruction of the English language is a sad, sad thing.
Okay, here goes:
1) REGARDS – Unless you’re sending them, it is never "regards", but instead, regard (ie. with regard, in regard to, etc.) – I have clients who think they’re so smart by saying "in regards to….yadda yadda" and I want to slap them!
2) A LOT – IT’S TWO WORDS, PEOPLE! Yeesh. Where were you in grade 1 when we were learning this. MY LORD! If I see it written as "alot" one more time I’m gonna throw something!
3) Amy, it’s REmember…not "member" 😀
4) Please don’t say "Mike’s and I’s" – seriously. Are you a bit retarded? It’s "Mike’s and MY" – or you can say "Leave a message for Mike and ME" and not "Leave a message for Mike and I." Basically, the sentence has to MAKE SENSE if you take out the other person. You wouldn’t say "Leave a message for I", would you? If you would then this conversation is over!
