I’m far from a grammar nazi.

I mean, but there are a couple of things that I cannot FRIGGING STAND, from a grammatical standpoint, that have been making my skin crawl.  Let me take you through a few, using the great Stanley Hudson of the Office to express my boredom, displeasure, and disbelief

  • It’s/Its.  

  • Balling/Bawling.  One refers to playing basketball.  The other refers to sobbing uncontrollably. Figure it out.

  • To/Too.  I can’t.

  • Your/You’re.  You’re a higher-up.  Why don’t you know the difference?  WHY?!

  • Affect/Effect.  God BLESS!  We work in mental health and with pharmaceuticals.  It’s IMPERATIVE we know the difference!

  • Loose/Lose.  We teach classes at the gym, where people gain confidence and LOSE weight.  Duh.

  • And finally, for my running bloggers.  It’s friggin CHAFING not CHAFFING.  CHAFING.  THAT is what happens to your skin when you don’t use Aquaphor, not CHAFFING.  God.
