You asked. I deliver

Don't worry. I've sent for Dexter to clean up the blood. Amazing what that boy can do.

Oh, and for reference:

Dear Rebeccah,
I am sorry to hear what happened to your father.
I would like to point out that my website is not about chanisaw. Is that an ethnic dish? Is it any good?
May I ask how old you are?

Dear Rebeccah,
I regret to inform "u" that I am not removing the cartoon. It is not meant to make fun (or offend) any of the following:

1)an ampuutee
2)(people who have) bin injured by a chainsaw accidnt like my dad who lost his leg and is on disability
3)people whove bin murdered

Let's focus on #3 for a second. How is this even possible?

I'm still waiting on Rebeccah's reply...

Here it is!

And I love how you added in Rebekah's original email (also have no clue if the spelling is correct. Too much of a hassle to scroll up right now).

That was a 19 year old typing?!? Sad, so sad...le sigh

I still wish more people would contact you with their inane thoughts, so that you might play with them a bit.

Love. Love. Love. those exchanges!

I'm glad this had a somewhat redeeming resolution to it, but that being said from Rebeccah's e-mails it would seem that there would be more to be gained in having a conversation with a chainsaw, rather than Rebeccah.

why did her dad give her such a complicated name to spell...Rebeccah

My brain tried to escape my head by just trying read that gibberish.

I'm old enough to remember that when I was in high school, we actually had to take spelling, grammar and writing skills exams and HAD to pass them.

I'm so glad my daughters paid attention to me rather thant their teachers when learning those skills. None of them use textspeak at all event to their grammar and spelling challenged friends.

You did your kids a great favour. I am glad my dad did the same to me growing up, though it was before "text speak" was a thing.

The best thing now is that I correct his grammar and word usage!

George said...

Thing was Squiggles that they would bring home an essay for instance chock full of misspellings, awkward sentences, incorrect paragraphs and it would show an A or B. They soon learned that I wouldn't accept that and they had to rewrite to my standards.

Eventually their teachers told me it was hurting their self-esteem by criticizing their work. They got a piece of my mind that night let me tell you. Their self-esteem was so hurt, one is going for her PhD next year, another is graduating top of her class (valedictorian) at Sheridan and the third didn't go past high school but has a small home business that makes enough money to live on. She is handicapped and lives at home still at 23.

My oldest is the head of the communications depaertment at an Edmonton hospital group after graduating from U of T 6 years ago. Not bad for a 33 year old.

Yep real hurt I'd say.
