Efficient Ado

I love grammar. Do I always flawlessly use it? No, but I try. It drives me crazy when I see postings online with little-to-no punctuation, capitalization, or coherent thought. I am especially frustrated with the all-too-common approach of trusting auto-correct. Case in point, the Walking Dead page on Facebook asked people to submit questions for tonight's Talking Dead episode with guest stars CM Punk and Yvette Nicole Brown. Here was one response:

Sorry Sean, but the term is "aficionado." I probably shouldn't expect much from someone who watches wrestling, but I do have hope for a brighter society. I understand that people have different levels of education and blah, blah, blah, but I went to terrible public schools in east Mesa, Arizona and still came out with a modicum of intelligence regarding sentence structure and the proper usage of a dictionary.

And I think this post proves I'm getting old. I'm sitting here complaining about the youth today. What an a-hole.

That is pretty bad, its almost like one of those auto correct things, except evidently not.  Maybe the guy was actually being chased by zombies and didnt have time to spell check.

@RazzaTazz: I like it. Because I'm an optimist. (Which ignores this whole blog.)
