I feel good!

I know… I’m writing AND I’m happy. It’s a contradiction in itself. I can only surmise that it’s because I only write when I feel an strong emotion in one way or another, and I don’t typically feel extremely happy. At least, I don’t typically feel extremely happy when I’m alone and around a computer. Things are looking up for me lately. This week, my boss said that I was “coming along nicely,” and he also said “good work” to me. He’s a Simon Cowell-type of character, so these comments are of the highest caliber!

I’ll admit, I’ve been doing the Steve Carell “victory dance” this morning (think Evan Almighty).

On another note– something that irks me to no end:

— People who leave reviews on iTunes (or anything else for that matter) who cannot spell correctly to save their life.

i.e. “This is actually avery good pop cachy song whit a soft nice beet”

“This CD Iz soooooo hott! I like Paula but of course he’ll put that song on here cuz of American Idol DuH! No Fence Randy, this CD either way iz hott.”

No wonder people outside of the United States think most Americans are ignorant idiots! Misspelling for the fun of it is stupid. I don’t have a problem (AT ALL) with people who have a spelling problem, or have a reading problem, such as dyslexia. My frustration is directly pointed at people who deliberately misspell things or are too lazy to proofread what they have written. I make a million mistakes every time I type. However, I take 2 seconds to look over what I have written and I attempt to correct my mistakes.

I also HATE intentional misspellings on businesses/advertisements. I am NOT going to eat at Steak Kountry. The mere fact that you’ve spelled “Country” with a “K” turns my stomach. I’m also not going to take my child to any daycare called “Kiddie Kollege.” Do you think I believe you are providing an exemplary education when you don’t spell “College” correctly? Also, on that note, if you are promoting “great curiculum,” then make sure you spell curriculum correctly.

Am I the only person in the world that is DRIVEN NUTS by this?

    Nope you’re not. Even though english is not actually my first language, it does drives me nuts! what’s wrong with spelling things the right way?

    Some call it linguistic degeneration, some call it linguistic evolution…i wonder what it will be in the end…

  2. I’m a stickler on grammar. I hate wrong uses of there, their, they’re or me and her instead of Her and I. Using a Z in place of an S should be a federal offense.

    Did you right this before or after we talked? Grammar is not that hard, especially in this day and age. SEE THAT RED SQUIGGLY LINE??? The green one is wrong sometimes though.
