grammar/spelling whores.

we passed a chicken place†today. it had a professionally printed sign up. and the sign said:

Tennesse Express

!!! so, of course they don't know how to spell Tennessee. but maybe they actually -think- it rhymes with 'express'. tennesse express. ARRGH. *KILLKILLKILL* :D

Hee.† I'm gonna start referring to Tennessee as "Tenesse," rhyming with "finesse."† Just to see if anyone does anything.†

A friend of mine once worked for a temp agency, and I tried to convince him to pronounce the word "resumť" as "resume" (like, to start doing something again), and only give a person the job if they started pronouncing it that way, too.

There's a motel on Bothell way NE that has a sign which reads, "Nise rooms, good prices."† Someday I'll stop in and tell them how much it makes me want to kick someone in the head.

I saw this shop in a strip mall.... they had a sign in the unit they used to be in. that sign reads: "We has moved ---> to unit #2B" under the chinese. *shakes head* how sad....

they actually -think- it rhymes with 'express'

in that case I'd suggest spelling it rather: 10 ass express ;-D

nothing chaps my ass more than bad spelling/grammar/contractions/punctuation. granted, i type really fast so i awlays make typos and ignore capitals and such, but thats a different thing.

when i see a sign or flyer in my city that is incorrect i make a point to be a bitch and tell them they're wrong. this fudge shop down my street has a sign that says "wedding favors" and i took out my trusty pen and inserted a U in favors. no U is fine for the US, but dammit, this is canada and if you're going to have a professional sign, SPELL IT RIGHT!!!!

what's everyone's biggest spelling/grammar peeves? mine is when people use your and you're wrong, there/their/they're, and "could of" and "should of" ... it makes me cringe.

"your a moron, no way their could of been an alien probe up you're ass!"

How about "to" and "too" used incorrectly... "I was to tired."† Why does this make sense to people??? This is why the world is laughing at us!!!

"Your to smart for me"

a guy i know uses, in reference to himself, †the quote: "if knowledge is power, then a god am i"

its funny because he spells knowledge wrong.

In today's competitive job market, a well-written resume is a must. It is an unfortunate fact that recruiters are inundated with so many applications that they can spare no more than a cursory glance for each one, before deciding whether it is of further interest. It is becoming harder to make a resume stand out in the pile and this accounts for the rise of professional resume writing service. But with so many options, how do you choose the best?

Is studyhippo legit? I was skeptical at first about trusting a complete stranger online with my assignment until I met studyhippo. What professionalism! These guys have proven me wrong countless of times with the excellent work theyve delivered. My professor just cant stop calling my name at the top of the list!
