I'm sure my "sid salad" is a Caesar! Try "side" for grammatical correctness.


I read the amazing, funny, and spot-on 
account of working for a tech start-up as an "older" 
​employee, ​Disrupted: My Misadventure in the 
Start-Up Bubble
 by Dan Lyons
. I finished it in one 
sitting, laughing and cringing at the same time. 
In multiple instances, I thought I had to contact 
the talented author and ask how he had the nerve 
​to steal my story of working as an "older" 
employee at a tech start-up. I did myself a solid 
​and Googled him and his story to verify that he, and the company he worked for, did exist. Living outside of Boston and working in publishing, I had a vague recollection of hearing about his story and HubSpot in the wayback recesses of my mind. I have since recommended this book to two former colleagues with whom I worked in my own tech start-up hell position. My recommendation consisted of this short summary: "We weren't crazy. This is happening elsewhere to others, too. If only we could take that validation to the bank and cash the check to pay our therapists." 

I'm starting a new endeavor near and dear to my heart — capturing grammar goofs I see in daily life. In an effort to "make America grammatically correct again," I'm posting goofs and corrections. Please feel free to share the horrors you see!
