Random Thoughts Thursday

• Typos is one of my pet peeves.  It really drives me crazy when I see them on  Instagram or Facebook.  Sometimes I feel like correcting that person, but will that make me a b$#ch?

• Is this a typo too?  I don’t understand why a word cannot be spelled out.  Are we that lazy?  I also HATE it when I see “fav” instead of “favorite”.

• I don’t know why I didn’t do this before, but I finally changed my car insurance coverage.  I used to pay for full coverage and recently changed it to only liability.  Now I am paying half of what I used to pay.  I am mad at myself because I could have saved so much money if I would have changed it before.

• Always, always coffee.  🙂

• I love math and wished my kids loved it as much as I do.  I am having trouble with them understanding subtraction problems.  We were working on a story problem and one student told me the equation was “20-36=”.  I wrote it on the board and asked for answers.  They told me 10, 24, and 0.  I had a fit!  Ugh!  Finally, a student did tell me that the equation was wrong because you couldn’t subtract 36 from 20 because there wasn’t enough.  Now I know I could have told them from the beginning that the equation was wrong, but I wanted THEM to tell me that and the reason.

  1. Ok, I don’t love math at all, but I do know the equation isn’t wrong. You’d just get a negative number. 🙂

    OTOH, I am totally guilty of using fav. A lot. Part of it is that people’s attention spans are so short! I actually do proofread most things I write, but things still slip through. I even spent a few months working as a proofreader once!

Thank you for your comment!
