English as she is spoke....

Since I can't figure out how to send JPGs through the PM system, I thought I'd leave them here for a friend and fellow member. ;-}

The last one is my favorite. It gets funnier each time you re-read it.

OMG. My mom is such a grammar nazi. She'll never admit it but she is. She infused proper grammar into me because she said its not well to do for a lady to speak improperly.

She used to want to be an English teacher once.

EDIT: I also want to state that I don't get all this "text speak" as its called. If your going to say something, say it right and don't be so dang lazy about it. The occasional "lol" is acceptable though.

I LOVE the fourth one down. <3 You have no idea how much it irritates me when people make that mistake! They're all great, though. My mom misuses words all the time and it drives me nuts.

What annoys me is when people use an apostrophe when they pluralize a word. Example : I have 10 betta's. No, it's bettas not betta 's.

Aww for me, Hally? Hehehe.
I'm pretty sure you can send pictures over PM though.
I like the last one too! It did get funnier the more I read.

I love it! My mother was very good at correcting my grammar. My father used to call her a frustrated english teacher. Keep up the good work.
