So a few weeks ago, I put up the link to Miss Manners - not because I expect everyone else to read Miss Manners as faithfully as I do, but because she's often funny, and always relevant. Click on the link to Miss Manners, click on Food Fight!, and scroll down. Read the letter. Then consider this: for weeks it has been driving me crazy, even causing me some physical pain, that my Regional Operations Director uses the word "effect" in emails when she means "affect," and vice versa. I have longed to figure out a way to mention it - though I know I'm the only person crippled by this particular pet peeve - but now I know, conclusively, that I can't.

But I'll be honest - there have been emails from her that I didn't finish reading, because I got to a particularly horrific error in the second sentence and couldn't go on. Call me melodramatic, but I know I'm not the only one. At the very least, my sister gets it.
