Okay, shit like this just drives me crazy

Ad on the local Craigslist, copied verbatim:

"free kittens the mother is a american short hair don't know who the father is there redy to go. there are 2 males that are black and white and one tiger striped femle the eat hard foor and drink water and they are manley litter traind they have to be showen the litter box some times but they are verry qute. thay are 8 weeks old if instren call (***)***-**** ake for hannah"

Look, I would never pretend to be some Grammar Authority, and I'm sure I make my share of typos, but ... really? Really?

"there redy to go"

"the eat hard foor" - whaaaaaaa?

"they are verry qute"

Oh, I could go on, but WHAT'S THE DAMN POINT? Ads like this are a dime a dozen. I swear, I don't know what the hell is happening, but it ain't good.

*shakes head*

"ake for hannah"

Well, I guess we'll just have to assume her name is hannah. Hell, it could be Sheryl, and she just doesn't know how to spell it.

And pity the poor mama cat who obviously still hasn't been spayed.

Ha, Becs, you should check out the variations in spelling the Craigslist Einsteins come up with for "spayed". Spaid, spayded, spade, you name it.

Welcome to my suburb of hell. Imagine what happens when the Hannahs of the world go to college and they spend more time texting than writing that essay...
