The Grammar Police Need to Be Called on an Actual Maine Police Department
First things first, before we even dive into this topic, make no mistake at all.
This article isn't a shot against any police, it's not laughing at them, it's nothing negative. I'll only speak for myself when I say that I respect police, I appreciate the work they do, I appreciate the men and women that put their lives on the line to keep us safe -- only good things here.
This is simply meant to bring you, the reader, and others, the simple chuckle that it brought me seeing it while driving down 295 in Portland, Maine.
Especially since, when it comes to social media, we all have (or are) that one friend who will be that person that leaves grammar corrections in the comments section, whether it's to help or just to be the human equivalent of the poop emoji.
There's also the fact that I'm sure in all my times writing articles, I've botched words and grammar more times than I even want to know about.
First off, respect to any officer that is in charge of driving the corrections van that transports inmates...well, wherever inmates need to be transported to and from.
I've watched too many action movies and television shows where inmates getting transported goes sideways to ever desire to have that job on my résumé, but have all the respect and appreciation for those that do it.
And, while I was a few cars behind the Somerset County Inmate Transport van wondering what a situation where inmates escaping out of the back of a van would even look like and how that would go (I have an active imagination, let me live my life), that "what if" scenario playing in my head was complete derailed as soon as I ended up directly behind the van and noticed something.
There may be no "I" in "team," but there are three of them in "division," not just the two that make the "divison" shown above.
When the Corrections Division needs a correction. When the Grammar Police need to pull over the real Police.
When this writer should quit while he's ahead and stop dropping horrible Dad jokes to end this article.
(But again, seriously, thank you to the Somerset County Corrections Division and all police officers everywhere that protect us and make our streets, neighborhoods, communities, towns, cities, and states as safe as possible.)
