Pedants' corner

I'm here with my tail between my legs.

Hello fellow pedants,

After making a comment on a thread about my irritation with a poster's use of the awful " he dont", I come over to you with my tail between my legs and head held in shame. I just couldn't help myself.

By way of explanation, my father is dyslexic and is/was always eager to know when he had misspelt something, or used incorrect grammar. I married a dyslexic man and often mention errors to him similarly. It's all in the effort to be helpful, but last night my poor tired brain couldn't take anymore I was irritated that no one pointed out this repeated error.

I'm sorry and in future will keep it inside or vent on here. Is that okay?

No, not OK. Learn to write correct English, people!
