  1. EDDIE! “Theres no excuse if they don’t catch party there’s camras all over the bank”

    There’s no excuse for you to write so poorly.
    There are schools all over the county!

  2. #2, True, there are schools all over, but poor writing and spelling are all over the place. It’s not limited to any particular group or class anymore. I even see incorrect writing in newspapers! Rules of writing, grammar and spelling just don’t seem to matter anymore. It can drive the rest of us crazy when we read it, though!
