Erica, this one's for you

One of my favourite bloggers, Erica Scott, has a regular Friday feature called Correspondence Hall of Shame. Erica is not only the star of some excellent spanking videos, she's also a copyeditor and proofreader. CHoS is a distillation of her best (or worst, depending on your point of view) email, IM and text messages, with all their typos, grammatical infelicities and rude comments. Especially their rude comments. And Erica always gives as good as she gets, if not better.

When I saw this on Fail Blog, I though of her. So Erica, this post is for you.

From Hermione's Heart

Part of me appreciates what she was doing, while a much larger part of me is annoyed by her blatant hypocrisy. She did not use a proper sentence in the entire dialogue.

It was a pretty funny response to a guy who needs to learn to at least say hello first.

LOL! That's a keeper.

HAHAHAHA! I love this! Hermione, you made my day -- thanks, sweetie. :-D Off to write this week's CHoS! -- Erica

Hermione said...

Anonymous - I spotted one near the beginning.

FD - I think it was very effective.

Dante - I agree.

Erica - Goody. I can't wait to read it!

Hermione: thanks for the link to another fun site to read. how do you find time to work with all the sites you visit??? Ah, you live in the frozen North, so Spring won't come until May... That explains it.

Hermione - I didn't count "was that a question?" because she insisted that he capitalize the first word of his sentence before she would respond. Either way, it's an amusing read. I approve. It just would have been much funnier if he could have gotten his mind off sex long enough to call her on her sentence structure.

Great find Hermione, thanks for the laugh.

Happy Easter, have a god weekend.


Hermione said...

Red - I'm a multi-tasker!

And you'd be right about spring coming in May up here, except that this year, we seem to have moved directly from winter to summer. It's HOT today!

Anon - I doubt he could get his mind off sex long enough for anything else.

Ronnie - Thanks, and Happy Easter to you too.

Hi, Hermione!
I thought this odd she made spelling/grammatical/punctuation mistakes too! sentence is not spelled "sentance", for instance...
But, as usual, you found something funny for us to read, so thanks for the giggle.
I go on the Facebook, and strangers often ask to "chat"... in the past I said yes to a couple, in all innocence, and the first (and last) question they asked was always blatantly sexual, so I disconnected. I remember, one teen asked if we could chat...amused, I asked what he wanted to chat about, and his reply was, "summat dirty" I replied, "I never discuss composting techniques with teenagers" and disconnected, lol.
Hugs, Daisy xxx

Daisy - Composting techniques? What a perfect comeback!


turiya said...

Oh now that was classic... I loved it!

And composting techniques... I'll have to remember that one!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter.
