English is Hard: A PSA

Apparently, English is a very difficult language.  So, here are a few reminders for my family, friends, and businesses that I receive correspondence from.

  • “Tomorrow” does not contain an “A”.
  • “A lot” is two words.
  • “Their,” “there,” and “they’re” are three separate words with three distinct uses.  Learn them.
  • “Loose” and “lose”.  “It’s” and “its”. See note above.

Your computer is equipped with a spellcheck.  Most websites have spellcheck built in.  Please, for the love of everything good in this world, USE THE SPELLCHECK!

If your business sends me any type of official correspondence, such as a newsletter, and you use “tomarrow” or “alot”, I will immediately unsubscribe.  There is no excuse for that.  If you have difficulty spelling, then have someone proofread your correspondence.  You’re just making your business look foolish.

Please note the different uses of “your” and “you’re” in the last sentence above.  See how easy that is?

  1. Another fellow ranter!

    There’s nothing worse than people who can’t comprehend – and correct – basic errors in their work.

    I’d like to add ‘people who refuse to re-read their work’ to your list; a personal annoyance!

    Please feel free to read some of my articles, and subscribe to my twitter if you have it! 🙂
