I was never very good in English classes in high school. I didn't care what nouns, verbs, adjectives, or adverbs were or used for. I knew I wasn't going to be a writer or editor or such. History wasn't a good subject either. I usually only got C's in them, with a couple D's.
My brain was wired for math and science. I could ace those classes without studying. My senior year I was taking college algebra but I needed to have geometry done first. They allowed me to take both at the same time because I did well so far. I hardly ever took any notes in class, didn't study but I got A's.
Even with my dislike and poor grades, I feel that I do pretty well. When I see posts that are run-on and have poor punctuation, I get irritated too. Is it really THAT difficult to even try?
Run-ons and lack of punctuation are one thing. Spelling is another issue. Granted, there are people from other countries and English isn't their first language. However, to those that it is their first language, most computers and cellphones have spell checker or autocorrect.
Ok, my rant over 😳
