Whats you’re pet peeve, grammer-wise?

Do you hear the sound of fingernails on the blackboard when you read that “the dog wagged it’s tail”?

Do your lips turn an angry white around the edges when an event that was “supposably” happening today has been rescheduled?

Does your head swim with murderous possibilities when the teacher complains that your kid is “mischievious”?

Take heart, kindred spirit. I, your comrade in the fight to stop the senseless slaughter of the English language, have taken it upon myself to address these pressing matters head-on.

Watch this spot for commentary on everyday criminal acts that make your tongue itch, your skin twitch, your reason unhitch, your concert pitch, your blanket stitch, your drainage ditch, your … (feel free to finish this sentence with any rhyming word that comes to mind).

Whether it’s apostrophe abuse, tortured verb tense,  sins against syntax, maladroit malaprops, or some other form of verbal villainy, if you watch this page long enough, you’re sure to find your pet peeve given its proper dressing-down.

I figure that should keep me busy writing, and you busy reading, for the foreseeable future.

Irregardless of the consequences.

    I used to get peeved “alot” over a certain misspelling, until I came across this rather fantastic blog that turned that pet peeve into a matter of humor:

    I guess I don’t get it. Irregardless, I like your dry humor. : )
