PARDON MY FRENCH*, BUT WHAT THE ACTUAL F*$K IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

If you ever need to be reassured that someone, somewhere, is wasting more time than you are on something even less important than licking the cream off of Oreos while binge-watching Seinfeld reruns you’ve been able to recite since 1991, visit the comment section of any article that is supposed to contain the answer to any question about grammar.

Because, holy crap!

I’ve never seen so many pissed off people working so hard to hurl vile, derogatory, well-constructed, technically perfect flaming hate balls at each other just to argue the proper use of commas.

I mean, I was well aware that trolls liked to sneak across the bridge to graffiti their hatred all over posts about the larger issues we face today: racism, rape, abortion, women in tech, women in politics, women wearing shoes while pregnant and then walking the fuck out the front door because fuck you, Steve!

Sorry. Typed myself right into the past there for a sec. The point I was trying to make was that

Yes, people suck.

And then some others descend on those poor souls like piranhas on a severed penis in the water.

Not that I’ve ever seen anything like that happen, but it seems like it would be a feeding frenzy down there…

Yeah, so, I’m gonna get back to my Seinfeld and Oreos like a civilized person.

I’ll leave grammar to the savages.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
