The Struggles Of Being a Grammar Cop

Grammar Cops.

We are some of the most annoying people on this planet.

👮

But, there are some struggles that come with our jobs…


  1.  People saying, “Grammar and Spelling are the same thing!”
  2. To everyone who doesn’t like reading (what have you done with your life????), they’re, their, and there are the same thing. And then you feel like ripping your hair out.
  3. This quote: “Ugh, you’re such a nerd. Grammar/spelling doesn’t matter anyway.”
  4. “Ugh, like I can’t even.” WHAT IS THIS SUPPOSED TO MEAN??? You can’t even WHAT? MORE LIKE YOU CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH!
  5. In most people’s minds, to=too=two. ARRRRGHHH. Or your=you’re. NO! NO NO NO NO NO!FullSizeRender 22.jpg
  6. When peer-editing, not wanting to seem like a jerk while you correct everything they write.
  7. “She didn’t like the pie so she gave the pie to her friend who ate the pie.” REPETITION. HOW DO YOU NOT REALIZE THAT THIS IS WRONG?
  8. “I literally died.” OBVIOUSLY YOU DIDN’T BECAUSE YOU’RE STILL HERE. actually i shouldn’t be judging this though because i say this ALL THE TIME
  9. Not understanding rap songs because half the words are strung together wrong, and they don’t make sense.
  10. Going above and beyond, even when you’re writing something simple. Most people will say: “First you do this, then you do that, next is this step, and blahhhhblaahhhhblah.” You say: “First, take {object} and do this. Then, using {thingymabobber}, continue {blahblahblah}. Lastly, finish doing{something} by…”

    Reblog, like, or comment if you can relate to any of these! What’s the most epic grammar fail you’ve ever seen?

  1. I can relate!!! Once I was peer editing for my friend and I found so many grammar/ spelling mistakes. When I pointed them out to her she just shrugged. That annoyed me so much!! ( I still love her)
    p.s I love the new blog design ❤

  2. I relate to ALL of these, but I connect especially with number 6. I want to correct them so they get better grammar, but then they get annoyed, and I’m just like I’M SORRY I JUST WANT TO HELP PLEASE DON’T KILL ME. XD Great post, Rutvi!

  3. I can’t really relate. I mean, I’m obsessive about my own grammar (I’m a self-grammar-cop) … but … this is an average email from my BFF:

    “Oooo and I wanted to say I want to beta read ivin….cause ive never actualy read it!! So when your ready ivin me!!! Lol! Kk love u!!”

    Usually it’s worse … that’s just the first thing I found. 😉 Okay, I’m kind of kidding, but I’m not very picky with out people … and honestly I read her emails like I’d read another language, so I never correct people anymore. I AM MULTILINGUAL! I CAN SPEAK ENGLISH AND CHATSPEAK! XD

    And then a common expression of mine has become “what even!?” which is normally geared towards my crazy border collies. I’m just like, “HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO GET ALL THAT HAY ONTO THE GROUND THAT QUICKLY!?!?! WHAT EVEN??????”

    • Oh, and I just remembered something! When I was about nine, I learned the different between too and to (I know, I was a slow learner!). And I was so happy, because I had been saying “me as well” and that kind of thing (as well instead of too) because I wasn’t sure … and it was really awkward. XD
