Then their are the people who can't get they're "theres" straight.
So I was not surprised to get this note in the comment section the other day.
AAAAAAARGGGHHH!!!! Are you SURE you're a schoolteacher?
Lightning is a powerful discharge of static electricity, usually associated with storms. The word does NOT contain the letter 'e'.
Lightening is the act of reducing a load.
Happily for this reader and me, frustration (as opposed to harbored anger) is not a sin, or we would both be in the soup.
Yes, I am a teacher. I guess this is on my "always wrong about" list. I also almost always misspell "argument". It seems to me that it should have another "e" in there (their, they're), since it's about when one argues. Spell check stops me in my tracks.
If only my " always wrong about" list stopped at spelling.
At least I know not to mix Imodium and bleach. I hope this lightnings your load.
