So important to set a "good" example.
And I can't STAND comma splicing, that's when someone separates two sentences with a comma rather than a semi-colon or a period, you should know what I'm talking about by now, it's incorrect, it's worse than quotation mark abuse IMHO.
Is "welcome" its own sentence? I'm not sure. I'm not a grammar expert, so I wonder and have probably committed my own comma splicing indiscretions on occasion.Regardless, I really appreciate those photos posted where the writer obviously thinks quotation marks are some sort of flair and not punctuation. This writer went to the trouble to switch between a green and red marker for the marks. That's classic.
I don't think High School students would even get those instructions! What is that?!
Signage. Ah shucks. Everybody knows "signmakers" (oops) can't write or spell.
haha! still makes me laugh.
So in reality I can take as many as I want as long as I say it's only "one"?
The best part is the fact that the quotation marks around the "one" in red are green, and the ones around the "one" in green are red.
andi, i think the anonymous before you was referring to the comment that is under the photo.
I like that this is in an elementary school where kids are probably already struggling to learn how to use quotation marks properly. This horrible misuse by an adult who is supposedly smarter than them is just adding to their confusion.
Is this like when your husband says he's going out for "a" beer with the guys?
"andi, i think the anonymous before you was referring to the comment that is under the photo."I think I should make a comment macro that says "If you want to complain about something on the blog, at least have the balls to write your damn name." Correct comma usage? Yeah, I don't actually care.
like a lovely little color switcheroo on the QMs (that's short for quotation marks. but will it catch on?) is going to inspire self-restraint from elementary school kids faced with a table of self-serve cookies.
Maybe they're hinting that you should show up with a really big bag and fill it with bags of cookies.
