• 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.
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!
You are right! The equation is correct, but negative numbers is something we don’t teach in 2nd grade. Hmm, I will have to figure out how to explain that now.
LOL, I assumed it wouldn’t be taught to children that young.
