Why are U-verse program descriptions so ungrammatical?

Why are U-verse TV program notes so ungrammatical.  Whoever writes them seems unfamiliar with the use of the word "who" an has difficulty getting nouns and verbs to agree.

Re: Why are U-verse program descriptions so ungrammatical?

ATT gets their program descriptions from a third party.  I'm not sure if that's good news or bad news!

 

I am in agreement with you though.  Grammatically incorrect ANYTHING (blogs/posts/websites/etc.) drives me crazy.  It's basic (elementary) English to know the difference between to, two and too and between their and thereSmiley Sad

I think my biggest grammatical pet peeve is the use of an apostrophe when it is not indicated; e.g. Smith and Son's as the name of a business.  And yes, the Guide is frought with various errors but I doubt that they bother most folks--just us nitpickers! Smiley Happy

The person doing those program descriptions has to be an EEOC employee.

 

That's the ONLY way somebody so incompetent could ever get that job.

When the Kentucky Sprint Cup races showed up on the Guide recently, they had forgotten the 'y' in Kentucky, everythiing was listed as Kentuck. Smiley Very Happy
