is one of my pet peeves
meaning I don't like it when it isn't done correctly.
I am not the world's most articulate person
but I damn well try my best
especially when writing
Ms Emma Thompson thinks so too
that people should speak properly
here let me let her tell you!!!!
She said: "We have to reinvest, I think, in the idea of articulacy as a form of personal human freedom and power."
Ms Thompson added that on a visit to her old school she told pupils not to use slang words such as "likes" and "innit".
"I told them, 'Just don't do it. Because it makes you sound stupid and you're not stupid."
If you want to read the rest it is
My biggest peeve is people who don't read what they just wrote
and don't correct the mistakes.
A whole blog post
filled with mistypes
or words that make no sense
obvious spelling mistakes
just make me cringe and my teeth hurt.
I am not talking about those whose language isn't English
I mean English/American/Australian
It really detracts from what they are saying
when you sit there and all you see are the mistakes
but it's true
there are spell checkers
just reading over what they wrote might help too.
The excuse usually given is
I type too fast....
or my brain is ahead of my fingers.
so, slow down
it isn't a race to the end
and you don't win if what you took so long to write is a mess!!
(We aren't talking about MY bad habit of not using proper punctuation here on the blog.
I am fully aware of it and I do it anyway
that's how this blog rolls.)
and lots of other
OH and remember........
( If all these graphics gave you a big headache.... I apologise
you're not the only one!!!)
