Sorry for the tongue in cheek question, but who is it that thought "gap's" was the correct way to use the word in the sentence "Anyone who has found a way to fill the gap's?"
The more time I spend online, the less hope I have for a literate next generation. I know it's just online conversation, and that online banter is regarded as a less formal way to communicate - but dang. Grammar and spelling rules were instituted for valid reasons, and I can't decide if the schools aren't teaching them or if folks just don't care. I drilled the fact that "words mean things" into the head of my daughter as she was growing up, and like it or not she WILL be judged by people on how she speaks and writes as she goes into the world of higher education and then on to her chosen profession, and I'm proud to say that it seemed to have stuck with her. I wish I could say the same about her friends and others in her peer group.
Again, I'm sorry to put this early morning rant by some anonymous internet grammar crusader in such a strange place, but I just had to vent a little after seeing this so early this morning.
Patiently waiting for Spring weather to arrive but happy for F1 to start up this weekend-
