a couple of pet peeves

– I really can’t stand the word ‘natch’. It comes across as stupid and pretentious and it annoys the crap out of me. I don’t know why I hate it so much more than other internetspeak – blog, tubes, lol, all of these bother me not a bit, but throw a natch in there and I want to scream.
– I get a weekly e-mail newsletter in which every! Single! Sentence! Is ended with an exclamation point! Even ones that are questions! Why does this man do this to me! Even worse is that he is rumored to be a college level English teacher!

Just needed to vent a bit. I feel better now! (Note the proper use of a !)

    Actually an iffy use of the ! (according to Strunk and White, anyway.) But acceptable. 😉 (And I totally understand what you mean about the overuse of the exclamation point).

    What the heck is “natch?” I have no idea, and have actually never seen that word *goes to google*

    It’s a shortened form of “naturally”? How retarded.

    ‘Iffy’ is an improvement over ‘makes me want to stab my eyes out.’ Right?
