There Are Exceptions To Every Rule

The "I before E, except after C" rule has failed this guy completely. At least he didn't stick a random "C" in there somewhere.

I like the quotation marks around the words "I pledge." I wonder what his intent was?

To be fair, the person that wrote the sign got the "rule" correct as the letter I was put before E, and IE was not following the letter C. Now, to be even more fair, anybody who has ever picked up a book knows that the "rule" isn't really a rule, nor is it even an accurate guideline.

if you say so, dumbass said...

Actually he did follow the I before E except after C rule. It just so happens that the rule does not apply to the word "Foreign".
I have noticed that you often end sentences with prepositions while attacking the grammar of these people. So, are you saying the kettle is black?
I'm curious, are you attacking these people's spelling abilities because you cannot come up with a decent argument against their logic?
