Pet Peeves

One of mom's biggest pet peeves is poor grammar. Bad spelling, poor punctuation and not knowing the difference between there, their and they're, as well as are, our, your and you're drives mom bonkers. She received an email today that took the cake. Mom had asked  the manager of their sister store when she could log in and work on one of the computers. The reply she received went like this:

Ok there on do OhTwoEight (the computer's name) first that is Roberta's blah blah

It seriously took mom a minute to realize the message was saying this: Ok. They're on the computer now. Do OhTwoEight first blah blah.

Which didn't solve the question of "Could she get onto the computer in question?" because if they were on it, mom couldn't log in. Mom decided she was just going to wait and deal with the problem late. Sounds good to me.

YOUR friend, from way up here in cold New Hampshire, sending this out THERE to all my wonderful blogger buddies and THEIR families hoping THEY'RE all staying warm,.

Lots of people do not read what they have written. Good thing your Mom could figure it out!
Stay warm.We might see some better temps later in the week :)

BOL. It's even worse when it happens in the workplace. Mom screams when Eye Phone changes her words.
The other day mom text her friend (thank God, it was a friend) "Be there in a while) it changed the words "Be there who're)
