This has always bothered me and now I have to get it off my chest. Once I do I can go back to living my freakin’ life!
One of my top ten pet peeves is when people leave out pronouns when talking or writing. Like they’ll leave out “I” from every sentence. For example, “Haven’t heard from you in a while. Didn’t know if you were dead or alive. Can’t wait to get back to work?” I’ve noticed that a lot of salespeople talk this way. Why saying “I” is so difficult, I’ll never know.
You know what I also hate? People who use “can’t” incorrectly. Well, I don’t know if it’s wrong, but it sure sounds dumb. Such as, “I’m going to see if I can’t get a date with her.” You’re going to see if you can’t get a date with her? What? How about seeing if you can get a date with her? Geez. Annoying people.
sigh I don’t feel as good as I thought I would. Gonna go see if I can’t get some sleep now.
