I am by NO means a perfect speller, thank goodness for spellcheck, or do I never make mistakes when it comes to grammar. But my job requires me to write, a LOT, and often in a very conversational form.
Yesterday, I fought with a co-worker for over 20 minutes about a line that he was to read during the show. It was a "tease", which is the term we use in television for a line of copy that promotes a story that will air later in the show.
Here's the way it was written:
And, next week, Me and Sarah will visit the five best breweries you may have never heard of. We'll learn all about making beer. That's next week at 5, 6, and 11.
Maybe I'm just being catty, but the grammatical error screamed out at me. I couldn't believe that a man that is almost old enough to be my father, has a least 20 years over me in the business, AND who is paid more that THREE times what I make could find this acceptable!?! Me and Sarah? How about Sarah and I....or Sarah and me, but NOT me and Sarah!
