The Grammar Nazi Shops for a House
It’s spelled dining. D-I-N-I-N-G. There’s no such thing as a “dinning” room, and I know it’s not a typo when you keep using it ALL THROUGHOUT THE LISTING.
The majority of houses I find online bear descriptions that look like a particularly uneducated twelve year old texted them to the listing office, so I had thought I was building up a thick skin to the clear lack of caring real estate agents put into their property listings. Oh no.
The thing is, the rest of this listing is decently put together:
Open Sunday 2-4. BIG AND BRIGHT! Beautifully renovated home in lovely Broyhill Park. 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, Georgeous Kitchen with granite, stainless steel, tons of cabinet and counter space! Gleaming hardwood floors, HUGE living room and dinning room. Master Bedroom suite is amazing, with multiple closets, separate jetted tub and stand up shower, dual vanity sinks! A MUST SEE!
So, “georgeous” kitchen aside (I kind of love that, actually), I’m reading right along until I hit that “dinning.” I think, ok, typo, and click on through to the photo gallery where everything–the captions, the page headings, everything to do with that particular spot in the house is spelled “dinning.”
Like nails on a chalkboard.
Hey, maybe this is a dinning room after all.
(Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all week).
