I know I've written about this before but I think it warrants a revisit. I see a lot of text messages, Facebook messages and emails and I continue to be amazed at how careless people are about simple grammar and spelling.
Very often I get a message or email that is utterly incomprehensible. I always respond with something like "What the hell are you talking about?" The sender invariably replies with an apology and the excuse that auto correct is to blame to which I respond, BULL!
What happened to the tedious but necessary art of proofreading BEFORE hitting the send button? Apparently gone by the wayside. The fact is no one really cares. Big deal. A typo. The recipient will figure it out.
Oh well. I will continue my crusade to bring pride and accuracy back to the written word.
