You know what? I’m pretty darn tootin’ mad.
At the impressionable young age of 7, I learned the spelling rule, “I before E, except after C.”
Whoever taught me that can suck it. I am an intelligent, 25 year old college graduate who is constantly being corrected by Microsoft Word because I put I’s before my E’s.
I’m just trying to follow the rules here people.
But nooo, most words don’t follow that rule! Was this rule developed by some sadistic second-grade teacher or something??!?!! (Mmm, alliteration….)
But seriously, each time that awful red, squiggly line appears under a word with an IE in it, I seethe.
I may just start spelling them my way. With that, I you all percieve your days to be positive, but that they are also wierd, in a nice way.
Take that red squiggles.
