Whats Wrong With This Picture?
August 25, 2011
Don’t worry. I intentionally left out the apostrophe in the title. Why? Well, if Old Navy can leave it out on their new college team tees, I can do it, too! There’s one difference, though. I don’t think they meant to leave it out, and someone’s probably in big trouble. Either that, or someone’s going to get a promotion for all the attention they’re (not “their” or “there”) getting for making such a big mistake.
And it’s funny because of all the tees for a grammar fail, it’s on their college tees. You would hope that by the time your kid gets to college, she would know better. Maybe if the mistake was “Lets go Preschool” fine. Actually, I take that back. It’s not fine, especially when you’re a multi-million dollar company that has enough resources to pay for a couple of proofreaders.
Which leads me to the question of the day, and it’s a fun one. What’s your biggest grammatical pet peeve? Sound off in the comments below.
