Know What
I'm Sayin'??

I'm nitpicking, I know, but...
I hate it when people write out the phrase "first come, first serve".

That's just stupid. Come on, people. Fill in the missing words - "The first to come is the first to serve?" That's just not right. This isn't the Army.

What you really mean is: "The first to come is the first to be served."

Hence, therefore, consequently and so..."First come, first served."

I can't believe I'm the only one who sees this. And it's not just a random fact that I picked up along the way. To me, it's common sense - at least an extension of that "Reading Between the Lines" worksheet that I was given in...what...the 6th Grade? 7th? Yet time and time (and time) again, I get e-mails and Evites from people who run businesses, and have years and years of education more than I. More money. More lots of stuff. More grammatical errors in their communications.

Sigh.

Spread the word.
