Writing Prompt Day 10: Top Five Pet Peeves
These are in no particular order. I’m sure there are more–just ask my students.
1) Grammatical mistakes in posts or articles that are meant to be poignant but immediately lose credibility due to complacent ignorance or blatant irreverence of the English language. (Is that grammar snobbish enough?)
3) Arrogance. (Unless you’re a member of the grammar police, like me. Ha! Am I hypocritical?)
4) Students (or anyone) exuding entitlement.
5) People who are energetic, early risers. If you speak to me within two hours of my waking, you simply don’t know me and don’t value your life. (This amends #2 for those of us who are not morning people.)
