    Grammar police calling. Do you mean to say pick it up this one time (instance), or pick it up immediately (this instant)? No personal offense intended. Four years of Jesuit-taught high school English makes you notice things like that. Sometimes reading the comments drives me nuts and I have to say something, even though I’m a plumber by trade, not a teacher.

    I think some people whose first language is not English have a problem with the grammar (and spelling).

    I have to agree. Unfortunately, I have gotten so used to the errors, I read ‘instant’ instead of what was written.

    Often the native speakers’ grammar and spelling is far worse than those who have learned it. Perhaps because non-natives are more careful…and actually study grammar. Back in the 60s when I was in elementary we were told “You’ll get grammar in highschool” and we read stories and poems, and wrote stories and poems. In highschool in the 70s it was “If you haven’t learned that in elementary we don’t have time now”…and we read stories and poems and wrote stories and poems. I learned because I love to read, and I read good authors.

    I’m sure Snowflake Bentley (proud son of Jericho, Vermont) is turning over in his un-defrosted Frigidaire right about now.

    And I went to a very old-school school in the 60s for my first 8 years of education; we were drilled with grammar and spelling. We moved between 8th and 9th grade and the new school system was VERY progressive. We learned about P groups and S groups (prepositional phrases and subjective clauses in reality). I spent a lot of time in high school proofreading and editing my friends’ papers because they were clueless. Continued into college – I, the biology major, correcting the English majors’ papers. Go figure!

    And yes, the grammatical errors do drive me nuts. Sometimes I know the person is not using their native language and I admire them for trying. (I studied Spanish, but wouldn’t attempt to write it after 30 years.) The others … they probably received that we-can’t-make-them-feel-bad-by-correcting-them education.
