Terrible Grammar and Up Yours

Sunday, 14 March 2010 at 11:45 am Pacific USA Time.

I got a notice on my door from my apartment community. Keep in mind that about half the people here rent, and half own as 'condos.' I rent. I wouldn't buy this. But do keep in mind that this development has one of the best views in town, so it's not cheap.

The notice is to let me know that this and next week, a tree specialist will be trimming trees. OK, thanks for letting me know. Here is an actual bit from the notice, typed exactly as it is:

"The trimming is necessary an arborist evaluated out trees and has made recommendations based on the desire for safety first and foremost, and then consideration was made for the long term health of the trees not for views and personal tastes."

Not only is that a non-sentence, but I sense a bit of f**k you in there. Nice marketing, fancy apartment and condo community.

    I love that they ‘evaluated out trees.’ It sounds like they sent them to a therapist.
