Our school is trying really hard to be "green" and environmentally conscious and whatnot. So, instead of printing things out and sending them home with the kids, we get tons and tons AND TONS of email. And that's great, because my child isn't always the best when it comes to ferrying things back and forth to the school. Notes get lost.

But. Some of these emails we get from the school are atrocious with regards to grammar and spelling. Lots of "your" instead of "you're" and a nearly 100% failure rate on "there/their/they're."

And let's not even discuss the multicolored Comic Sans.

So I grumped about it on The Facebook (as I am wont to do) and so far, I've been called a snob, an elitist, and a "grammar nazi" for pointing out that maybe, JUST MAYBE, communications coming from the school should have correct grammar and spelling.

Is that too much to ask? It's not like I'm getting out the red pen and correcting it and sending it back (though that did cross my mind). I'm just bitching about it on the internet like a normal person.
