Internet and Text messages – two technological marvels that revolutionized the way we communicate. But in addition to that, they had one more important contribution to our lives – the grammar went down the cyber drain. Who has time for the correct grammar when you are  churning our scores of words every minute? But then there are people who are always looking for perfect grammar. I am not one of them as my own grammar is nothing to write home about. But I constantly interact with people who keep correcting me on my grammar. Even on whatsapp!!! For example, I cannot for the life of me, comprehend what is the difference between figuratively and literally. I mean, they are literally (or is it figuratively) the same.  Probably, some Grammar Nazi can help me out in the comments section. Any ways, if you are one of those who are a grammar police or are abused by one, read the signs of the ultimate grammar police.
