Grammar Policing

Back in the day, before cell phone cameras, I would have stood on the subway sighing deeply to myself about the decline of English grammar as we know it. But in the new and improved world in which we live, I can take pictures and share my dismay with everyone.



Yes, note closely: there are two errant apostrophes: one in it's, and another in don''t.

Swoon.

The exclamation points might also be worth mentioning. Of the six sentences in the bubbles, five end with two exclamation points, and the sixth ends with one. Six sentences, eleven exclamation points!! I would suggest that it's a record, but my 8 year old uses a prodigious number of them in every single email she sends!!!!!!!

I would have sighed deeply with you. Maybe we could have gnashed our teeth too.

I admit it, I love exclamation points. I'm an abuser and I know it. (!) :)

A little proofreading goes a long way--even spellcheck would have caught the quotation mark/double apostrophe error.

Well at least there was subject/verb agreement. Be thankful for small things in today's world I always say.
