WOW! Several things will send me into a fiery rage: Misspellings, bad grammer, excessive use of exclamation points and dots, not capitalizing things that should be (i.e. ‘I’, ‘proper names’, cities and states). Especially when talking to college students who tell me they’re English majors. WTF?! I mean, come on. They don’t know the difference between ‘there, their and they’re’, ‘to, too and two’. I’m constantly seeing, “I have to much time” or “I’m going too go, two.” Oh, please! English major my arse.

And speaking of businesses that allow their teenaged employees to change the sign in front…Arby’s here apparently needed workers. The boy changed the sign out front. It said ‘Now hiring all sh*ts’ instead of ‘Now hiring all shifts’. Made me chuckle after I got over my ‘English major’ attitude.
