|Why is "really" in "quotations?"|
It's a huge pet peeve of mine when people use quotations
in the wrong places. For instance, on the bathroom door
at work, there's a sign that says: PLEASE "KNOCK"
BEFORE ENTERING. WHY IS KNOCK IN
QUOTATIONS?!?! Do you want us to PRETEND to

|ugh my dad does that. he has no idea what to do with quotes. he gives cards to us on our birthdays with something like: happy birthday, "love you", dad.|
...or maybe he does know what quotes mean and is just an asshole.
it could be either, really.
