To Further Illustrate the Point

Here's an email that T. Lamb forwarded me today from one of the college kids in the course she is a T.A. for:

Dear Madam,
I am sorry to inform you on the last minute, but I have diarrhea as of
this moment and I am really not in condition to sit in the class. I ate
some food in the afternoon, which made my stomach go upset. Initially I
thought I might be able to control it, but its not getting any better
at
the moment.
I have not missed a class yet, and I hate to lose out the points of QIM
cards too. So is there a way I can hand in the QIM card for todays
class
tommorow?
Again I am very sorry to inform you on the last minute, but I was
waiting to see fi I get better, but unfortunately there was no
improvement in my condition.
Please let me know if there any thing else I can do.
Thankyou.


A future congressman, I'm sure.

except better written and actually grammatically/syntaxically correct. "on the last minute"? *shudder*

I was gonna say.

You'd never write anything that read like that. You've got too much pride ;)

I was having palpitations the other day from reading a menu at a pricey restaurant in which all the plural words featured apostrophes (except "entrees," for some reason). Mojito's, appetizer's, you name it.

I have the same attacks whenever I see anything our graphics department at work puts together. Today it was "it's" in place of "its." That's fairly basic, isn't it? And these people get paid more than I do? Insanity!

Think On It
