17 I understand what you were doing but you probably got thumbs downed for the condescending tone to your reply, it was at worst an honest mistake by me no need for negativity. So I make occasional grammer and spelling errors or misuse a word, so what? It's not as if its intentional but this isn't a English/grammar instruction it's a humor site. I just think people focus on the wrong thing too much.
It's not the irony that people generally talk about, but it is in a sense it is quite a good example of dramatic irony. If the two were living in a play and not the real world, OP would be the character who is not aware of how bad her sister's driving actually is. She doesn't forsee her sister crashing her car, but anyone else might predict it. When the character says, "You're not a bad driver," and the sister crashes her car afterwards, it's dramatic irony. Little bit of a simplification, but there ya go. Dramatic irony. Fun, fun, let's learn about dram-a! :D
Here's the rundown 35. "This isn't a English/grammar instruction it's a humor site." Three things. 1) It's supposed to be AN English/grammar instruction. 2) There is supposed a comma in between instruction and it's. 3) Just because this is a humor site DOES NOT excuse you from using proper grammar and punctuation.
41- There is nothing wrong with correcting someone, but you're being a complete dick right now. I'll admit that there are some idiots on this site (excluding Airman) that actually need correcting, but this is different. As Doc said, this is in fact irony, which renders your original argument invalid. In terms of ranting about Airman's few grammar mistakes, you need to chill out.
DISCLAIMER: The comment you are about to read will be terrible. Viewer discretion is advised. Ahem starwind? Ewe our da waurst tipe o comenter. Lyk u knead 2 chill out: aight? U jus got to luv they're irony ov dis shitty situation, cuz it sucks. :) #UFealinMeh? There ya go buddy, correct that.
giving her a driving lesson probably would have been a better choice
You learned a very valuable lesson: NEVER try to convince bad drivers that they are anything but. It gives them false security and makes them drive even worse, thinking they aren't as bad as they are. Your sister is proof of that. But I swear if I see one "women drivers" comment, I will blow a gasket.
