You know what we mean

English majors all look the same.When it comes to sentence structure and self-editing, it’s painfully obvious that most people around us don’t care. We see it in places of business, in advertisements and on the entire Internet.

Sometimes, yes, we’re nitpicking when we point out your errors in written communication. We still “knew what you meant.”

Maybe we were acting like Grammar Nazis all along: rounding up your mistakes, relegating them to ghettos and then eventually exporting them to slave labor camps where your misplaced apostrophes were worked to death, medically-experimented on and gassed before they were cremated and buried in mass graves. Perhaps you weren’t exaggerating at all.

Of course … it only took one typo to set a man convicted of possessing over 100 grams of cocaine (who is also wanted for weapons violations) free.
