In the middle of reading this, flipping around, in the back there is a usage section and there are word pairs that get confused:

  • naval, navel - What? Come on...
  • miner, minor - You gotta be kidding me.
  • ordinance, ordnance - I kind of get this.
  • straight, strait - That's it, I am outta here.

Am I overreacting?

Those aren’t usage issues, they’re more spelling errors.

When I think common usage errors, I think there/their/they’re, to/too, and you’re/your...

Like you, I would’ve hoped that a book on syntax would have recognized that.

It’s unbelievable how often I get notes from school  teachers that have those errors. 

‘Please be sure to sign the waiver if your going on the field trip.’

’Their all looking forward to it.’

Good lord, I almost added a golf post to my status report. Good thing my buddy stopped me from posting that along with this...

You quoted before I edited. What’s funny is I changed it to 0.4 from1.4 in the first place 🤪

And after I edited the first time 

I added this here, because it's also a really dumb thing. Last time I try to write a report and blog at the same time, and thank goodness for "zoom" screen share. 🙈

Recently saw an ad for a local supermarket's "Big Seafood Sale". They had an incredible special on MAIN lobster tails! I never knew that there was one main lobster in the sea that provided all the lobster tails!

Brie Larson was good, too.   She’s got a lot of charm.   Since she may be one of the big guns in the Marvel Universe going forward, it’ll be nice to see how they flush out her character

Pretty sure he means "flesh out." 🙂
