Need A Stalker? When Grammar Matters On Amarillo Reddit.
Look, I'm not going to sit here and get on anyone about grammar. Even the best literary minds can have a grammar mistake from time to time, that's why they have editors.
There are no editors on Reddit. What you type is what you type, and unfortunately, you're putting it out there for the whole world to see. Some people will try to correct it, some people will have a little fun with it, and some people will look for the intent they meant with the grammatical error.
I saw a mistake that was made by a user who posted something helping a family member find a job, and I got a good laugh out of it. No, I didn't make a comment on it, but many did. Some were heated exchanges between people, some were funny, and one even felt a bit sad.
Ok, so based on what the OP typed, I think we all know what the intent was here...stocker. However, stocker and stalker mean VERY different things. It's not quite the their/there/they're debate. Sure, they mean different things too, but not the way this one did.
I saw the title and had to read it twice...then I noticed there were 80 comments on the post so far. I had to dig in and see what people were saying.
This had to be one of the more clever responses. Asking how much being a stalker pays got quite possibly the best answer back. "2-4 years depending on the state". I was rolling, and so was the person that made the original comment. Way to be quick on your feet with that one.
This next one I wasn't so sure how to feel about it. I think I just felt a bit sad for this person.
I like to think everyone in the world is wanted by someone, but it's sad this person feels like they're unwanted period. I think what really got me was two people upvoted the comment, which means there's two more people that feel the same way.
As I said, I'm not here to poke fun at the OP of the thread. There is a backstory as to why they're trying to help, and I hope this person does indeed find a job and be able to pick up the pieces of their life.
