Grammar lesson at 7:30 am

Wednesday, July 2, 2008

Bah - I got into work today and was immediately pounced on by one of my principal architects.

Last week, I wrote a quip of a response to a non work related email. This email ended with "Jim and I."

Apparently this blatant disregard for the English language constituted a grammar lesson, no sooner than my butt cheeks hitting my chair.

The approach: "I've noticed you have a problem with the correct usage of me and I."

It was honestly said: "I know that they kind of stopped teaching this after I got out of school."

Closure: "Do you think you've got it?"

All before morning coffee people!

I'm not an English major, but . . . I have been praised for my word crafting. Give me a freaking break if I write a personal email incorrectly!

There is no excuse. None. Under no circumstances should he act like that before morning coffee.
