Sorry, but I’m a firm believer in not only the Oxford Comma, as well as all forms of grammar rigidity, especially since living among the absence of such is hastening my eventual decline into ridiculousness. Call me petty, but that’s the way it is for someone who spends their days dealing with the open defiance of all rules of written language usage. Then again, who cares as long as we’re communicatin’? I mean, honestly, DILLIGAS?
One thought on “We have rules for these things you know”
I’m no grammar nazi, but I do appreciate the Oxford comma. What really drives me crazy is whenever I see, people using, the comma, this way. I wrote for a magazine many years ago, and their “editor” used to pepper my submissions with commas as if he were reading them out loud, while climbing ten flights of stairs.
