This is for anyone that thinks punctuation is optional. Yeah, I’m talking to you, kids of today.
I originally read about this on Neil Gaiman’s blog. A Canadian company stands to pay an extra $2.13 million due to one little comma appearing in a contract where no comma should have been. Now, this is obviously an unlikely thing to happen to anyone that’s just lazy when they send a text message, but it proves that grammar and punctuation are important things, not just the sick obsessions of us weird writer types.
