When I make up words, it's charming. But when YOU make up words...yeah, not so much.

I think it's cute that the website is named It's kinda catchy. But then they attempt to pretend that "jobing" is actually a real word and they use it in phrases and act like it's a word when it's so not. I'm all about making up words, but not words that sound and look retarded. I mean, come on, even if this was a real word, wouldn't it be spelled "jobbing" and not "jobing"? Think about it: If I decide to rob a bank, I'm not going to write that I'll be "robing" it. I'm going to write that I'll be "robbing" it. Ugh.

Thanks to MARILYN for sending in this picture! I'm starting to wonder about San Diego--you people seem to have a LOT of bad grammar out there! :)

Sadly, it's not just the west coast. I live in Milwaukee and on the bus today I saw the local version of the sign on a bus shelter and it made my stomach turn.
