Should of paid attention in English class

This one's for you, Adrianne.

The same (grammatically not-so-smart) girl that inspired me to write this post about "This is Olive and I's house" is inspiring me again. I think she must inspire the writer of Seriously So Blessed as well...which I can't say is a compliment.

My friends, please never write "should of," "could of," etc. It is should HAVE and could HAVE. Have you ever realized how weird the words should, would, and could are? Maybe we should add Ls to every word. Did you see how I didn't put an apostrophe in Ls???? Cause there shouldn't be one! I should add that to my last apostrophe lesson.

Oh, today the agents at work got brochures that said "Congradulations!" right on the front. Wow. It was a professional brochure, too.

Shut the hell up. Who in the sam hell is "seriously so blessed?" I want her to get hit by a car.

I enjoyed this lesson. Will you please do me a favor? I know it's not grammar, but it still relates. Add a lesson on how it is, "I couldn't care less," not, "I could care less." I'm EXTREMELY bothered by that...Hello, it doesn't make sense! You're saying you COULD care less, which means you care, because there's room for less caring. Ugh.

Dear Grammer Nazi, You're missing your calling in life. You need an editing job!! But it's fun (I think??) that you're editing our blogs and educating us. I'm curious about the "could care less" debate too. Thanks for the one of a kind b-day card!

Congradulations... are you serious? I hope I've never written "should of," or "could of." Oops if I have. Thanks for the lessons!

You really are so hilareous. . .I have another friend named Kari that comments on my blog and I've always assumed all Kari's are her, so now I'll have to check each time, OH MAN!! I need your address for a Christmas Card. . .email me. . .your sort of distantly removed cousin: sarahidiart@msn.com

I agree with mommy dearest. You need to get paid for your grammar geekiness.

Yay! We are blog friends now! I probably wouldn't have seen your comment had you not told me. I think your blog is fabulous. And yes, we were engaged after 2 1/2 weeks of dating. Crazy!
