I'm so tired of people using the wrong words and getting mad at ME because I answer the way it's worded. I'm not psychic. How the heck do I know you
meant something else?!?! It's not my fault you suck at grammar or spelling. Why should I dumb myself down because you can't get a simple phrase or
word right. Whatever happened to constructive criticism? Now people get all butt hurt if you correct them like it's the end of the world.
Also what happened to communication in this country?! Why do people love to be cryptic and then when you call them on what they said as not being what
they meant they get pissy?! Why should I have to decipher your words when you clearly can't use them properly.
Have people become that lazy?! YES!
I get so tired of people telling me to "get over it" and "ease up" or "it's not a big deal" when it comes to me correcting their grammar or spelling.
Well YES it IS a big deal! If you write a paper for your job and it's incorrect is that ok? Why am I suppose to just look over the lack of effort put
into something that a grown friggin adult should have grasped by now?!
I am not perfect and I make mistakes but my goodness some people are repeat offenders and just don't care and say they don't care. Well maybe you
should! Is it pride? Is it the fact someone corrected you? I mean what gives?!?!
There was a time when being educated was a privilege but now pretty much everyone goes to school. How can you take something like that for granted
that so many in the past would have benefited from and embraced it. To have basic reading and writing skills at one time was looked at as superior yet
now people are lazy about it and think it's too much work to use words properly.
Getting an education even if it is only thru high school still teaches you some valuable life lessons. Why not use that in life instead of being
stubborn because someone corrected your sentence. It isn't meant to be an insult yet soooo many take it as that.
Ok sorry for the rant but the last few days a few people have really pissed me off with this.
