LoL, so true! I must admit I'm usually horrible with punctuation.
That is funny!
What comes to mind as I read it is how our society today is more comfortable with texting and emailing than they are phone conversations or even face to face conversations. Even for people who write well (including correct use of punctuation), tone and body language can not be determined from the written word, unless perhaps the reader knows the writer quite well. Sadly, I can personally testify to this - damage has been done in a few of my relationships because the reader didn't understand where I was coming from and couldn't hear my heart.
This is a great advertisement for using correct grammar. I doubt anybody is really going to "eat" grandma, but I do think, especially in legal situations, the use or misuse of punctuation can make a big difference in outcomes.
