And we wonder why literacy is on the low?
I recently saw a commercial for a detergent (I think it was gain) and I couldn’t hold back from being annoyed with it. You might wonder, “What are you going on about Junior?” I threw that in since it’s what my friend Karen calls me.
Anyway, on with my disdainful rant.
I hate to be a grammar Nazi, but when somebody uses the pseudo-word “gooder” it makes me question the literacy of said person. The fact that a company would allow such a word into a commercial for the world to see is just asking to be ridiculed.
It reminds me of when someone (name withheld) said they wanted kids to “read gooder.” With literacy role models like that it’s no wonder the literacy rates are so outstanding, is it? For those who missed it, that was sarcasm fyi.
I want kids to learn to read BETTER, but they need literate ADULTS to teach them, Gain & G.W.B are obviously lacking in that department. No offense intended, but come on!
