Good thing we’ve got a college education behind us

There are signs plastered all over campus this week advertising that the disability resource center needs volunteer note takers to help some disabled students. The last part of the sign reads [sic] "Volunteer note takers will receive a ten dollar gift certificate for the bookstore; at the end of the semester, for each credit of the class." So, let’s imagine that the person who wrote this is so grammatically impaired that he really thinks the use of the semicolon and the comma in that sentence is correct. It probably wasn’t an english major after all. Still, don’t you think that if you had written an ad that you were going to make 300 copies of and post where the entire university would read, that you could ask someone to proof read it real first?

  1. And your "coma" should be spelled "comma" before you rip on others.

  2. Thanks for the tip. Typo removed. Sorry if I offended you. I wasn’t trying to imply that I myself am the perfect writer who never makes any grammatical or spelling errors. On the contrary, I know that I don’t write perfect, which is why I said I would ask someone to check my stuff before I made 300 copies of it and posted them all over town.
