While going through Sister's backpack yesterday after school, I happened to pull out an activity sheet given to her by the librarian--oops! I mean "media specialist"--at her school. At the very top was the heading "Media Center Scavengar Hunt." A spelling error on a library work assignment?! Fer chrissakes. I look further down the sheet and read the question, "In which Nonfiction section did you find it in?" This question was written the same way not once, but three times. She almost got the prepositional usage right and then had to go ahead and let that participle dangle there anyway, didn't she? Damn it. This reminds me of Sister's teacher last year who I noticed spelled "canteloupe" incorrectly on her chalkboard for God and everybody to see during a lesson on fruits and vegetables. That's a tough one for many people, so I let it slide. But this library work sheet bugs me. I really shouldn't mention it though, huh? I mean, doing so is just going to piss someone off. No one in our school is going to appreciate me being the spelling and grammar police, even if they are charged with the education of my daughter IN THE TOP SCHOOL DISTRICT IN THE STATE and presumably want to be teaching correct information. (And believe me, I know the REAL grammar hounds of you out there could probably find a bajillion errors in my prose, most probably in my comma usage.) But a spelling error right there on top of the frickin' assignment...!
