1. Take a look this confusing note, just sitting there, toying with your emotions.

And then this chalkboard message, whose absolute correctness wraps its loving arms around your soul.

2. The message on this cake can make you irrationally angry if you let it.

But if these beautifully punctuated birthday cupcakes don't do it for you, I don't know what will.

3. Unquestionably, this Post-it Note gets under your skin and might even make you itch a little.

But here's a napkin love note made even sweeter by the correct use of "you're."

4. Now check out this poorly written fortune, which needs to retreat back inside the cookie and die.

And then this fortune, which is basically an orgasm in comma form.

5. How totally cringeworthy when someone sends a text that just has you like, "All parts of no."

But how healing that there are still those like you out there demanding textcellence.

6. And here's a Craigslist post so bad it might make you question the meaning of life altogether.

But, you guys, the gorgeous commas and semicolons in this letter? Swoon.

7. And here's a photo of an unacceptable express lane sign that many establishments would implore you to accept.

But to ease your nerves, here's a photo from a store that totally gets it.

8. Try not to scream at this infuriating photo of "bananas by the each."

@_savocado_ / Instagram / Via instagram.com

But take a deep sigh of relief, knowing that, somewhere, a sweet Grandma's life was spared by a comma.

9. Wait, who is "Boy," and why is he the only one who gets to use this bathroom?

@jjhoster / Instagram / Via instagram.com

And to the magnificent soul who made a little bathroom stall cheat sheet for their brethren — can we hang out?

10. How annoying is it when someone's snarks aren't even on your level?

@mrshannahrushforth / Instagram / Via instagram.com

And how fulfilling is it when someone is both grammatically sound and self-aware?

@coochiemonstapt5 / Instagram / Via instagram.com

11. Ok, try not to lose your shit at this annoying AF bathroom memo.

@harlemhuntress113 / Instagram / Via instagram.com

But relish at the sight of this one, which is not only correctly punctuated but also pretty damn lovely, yes?

@pengo.photo / Instagram / Via instagram.com

12. And yes, you might be tempted to totally lose faith at the sight of this sad pool sign.

@lulaloe.tracey / Instagram / Via instagram.com

But allow this teenager dressed up as a sentence diagram for Halloween to give you unrelenting hope for the future.
