we're real "sorry"


Kate spotted this in Hampton Hill, England. I can tell that these folks are real "sad" to not have to work this weekend. They'll be crying the whole time they are at the beach.

It looks like they're not holding out much 'hope' (second bullet) of being open for at least a week, so i guess it's more than just a day at the beach maybe it's their regular vacation...

I think a lot of people use the double quotes for emphasis, as a substitute for bold text or underlining or - in the case of internet English - ALL CAPS.

Because it would be rude to write, "Bite us," on your sign

Just found your blog. OMG. This is seriously the "best" thing "ever." ;)

I posted it to Facebook along with the following thought:

"Wow. For the second day in a row, the editor in me has a tear in her eye. It is so nice to know that there ARE other people out there who cringe at this sort of thing. Over the last few years, I have definitely noticed that the grammatical ability of the American public is rapidly spiraling downward. Perhaps it is simply language evolution and I just need to get over myself (and it). Still, I doubt I will ever get over the increasingly common misplacement of the apostrophe (NOT NEEDED WHEN PLURALIZING!) and the often incorrectly used "they're/their/there" or "your/you're."

I suppose teaching grammar just doesn't matter anymore? (wtf???)"

"Nice" job.
