Here is the thing.
I grew up with a mom that corrected my English constantly. It has been deeply ingrained in me since birth. Therefore hearing incorrect English, or seeing incorrect English is like nails on a chalkboard for me (unless I like, do it myself). I'm a stickler for spelling and punctuation, too. I'm glad that blogger has a spell check.
Christmas is a particularly difficult time of year for most people when it comes to punctuation.
For example, I recently received a card from my cousins that said, "Love, The Smith's." Smith is not their last name. What went through my head was, "The Smith's what?"
Love, The Smith's dog?
No apostrophe needed. It's just "Love, The Smiths". That's all.
I was discussing this with my friend Lisa who I can count as one of my snobby literate friends, when she pointed out the misuse of quotation marks that runs rampant in the world.
Now this is going to bug me, too.
We all have our thing. Please don't hate me because this is mine!
