Recently I saw a bumper sticker that read: “Speak English or Go Back to the Country You Left”
This got me thinking: Why stop at the spoken word when considering who(m) gets to stay or go? Let’s include the written word as well and send away people who write things like:
- Your welcome.
- We open at 7:00 everyday.
- I like you alot.
- I’m smarter then you.
- I’ll prolly be late.
I bet many of those sporting the above bumper sticker wouldn’t pass a written English test. If not, I say we send ‘em back to wherever their great grandparents came from! Err, I mean, from wherever their great grandparents came. Or at least somewhere I won't ever encounter them.
