Email Subject: Hilton Garden Inn Menu's
"Dear Carolyn, Belinda gave me all of your information today. May 27th, 2010 is available for your wedding reception. I have attached our menu’s to this email for you to look through."

Would it be evil of me to write Miss Brittany back and tell her that I'm calling off the entire wedding because their atrocious misuse of punctuation has undermined my faith in the very future of mankind? (Both the email and the "menu's" itself were painful to read.)

But perhaps I shouldn't be so hasty... Just whom am I marrying, and why have we chosen New Mexico for our reception, anyway?! Maybe I should find out first...

I'd say, go ahead with the wedding just for the hell of it. How many times do opportunities like these come along?

Does the menu look good?

I think you should write back, "Your atrocious use of the English Language (especially your apostrophes; check out [link]) is quite disturbing. Could you kick up the professionalism up a notch?"

And link to Bob The Angry Flower or Theoatmeal's guide to the apostrophe.

When she writes back slightly angry, tell her that she should also check her email addresses, since you're not getting married in New Mexico, and she really should be more careful.

Then wish her a nice day :)

If it were legal, I'd marry you in New Mexico! And we would have chosen it because it fit with the "something new" part of the saying.
