TAMN's inbox: you're letters, part III

Been WAY to long since I shared some emails from you guys! Here're just a few for you guys to help validate me.

First off, what's with all these grammer nazi's, seriously?? Every one has their nickers in a twist over the "contact me" part of my sidebar. Check out all these grouchy's, {all from different people};
I don't usually email people I don't know but this I could not let go. We all mis-spell sometimes but I think it should be "Hitting too close to home" with a double o on the to."


Hi there. "hitting to close to home" or "hitting too close to home"? I think the latter is the corret one. Just thought I would mention that.

I don't have a clue of who you are. But I will say this. I just stumbled into your blog and was embarassed for you of how you spelled "hitting to close to home" on your sidebar, just a heads up in case you want to fix it and not have everyone think your illiterate

Sheesh. All the to's just get confusing, which is why it is easiest 2 just start 2 use #s & symbols instead of words. Whatever. No one thinks I'm a literate. Quit studying for the spelling bee and go live your life so you have stuff to blog already!

THEN there's THIS one that made me cry, luckily I am a cute crier:
I had a friend recommend your blog a while ago and I am appalled. The way you talk about others makes me think how immature, self-centered and judgmental you are. I hope you change and become a less pretentious person and realize that you need to be less judgmental of others and more accepting and quit trying to change others.
What the heck?? Why would I STOP trying to change people when they have a ton to learn from me? IT'S CALLED SERVICE.

And finally:
you are making a fool of yourself. like saying how beautiful you are and how lucky you are. your husband probably just laughs at you. and for hiding pictures of yourself you must be real ugly and embarrassed who you are. little do you know we are all laughing at your blog and making fun of it.
Guys, is that true????????

Oh, dear. It's just too funny now.


Some people really make my day.

ariel said...

i still can't fathom how people misinterpret this blog. uh-mazing.

kristi said...

I love how the person judging TAMN's spelling wrote your instead of you're.

Rach said...

Pure gold.

I was actually just thinking that I wanted one of these...I love when people get outraged at you. Thanks for reading my mind!

Bobby Digital said...

Tamn two worlds....Jell-Osy.

kris said...

My favorite is the one who said "I hope you change" and then in the next line, "Quit trying to change others."

Impressive.

Heather said...

LOL~~~Ignore the jealous spinty's TAMN. You should be proud that they could only find one spelling mistake, makes me a little alarmed on their part that they missed so many others...

Kerry said...

HOW IS THIS STILL HAPPENING???????????????????????????????????

love it.

CaitStClair said...

"No one thinks I'm a literate."
Ha ha! That one might be my all-time favorite!

Sundance Kid said...

I love how even in one of the emails you got about grammar there is a misspelling - they said, "think your illiterate" and should have said, "think YOU'RE illiterate". Ha ha, know-it-all.

Natalie said...

What's with the haters? Pretty people don't need to trifal with trivyal things like how to spell!

jayna said...

I don't comment often, but man- this is truly the best part of your satire: The Clueless Comments from people who don't know what this blog is.

Keep it coming, TAMN...you're a modern comedic genius.

Amanda said...

Of course they're the silly ones, not you. My favorite was the last letter about the "too close to home" when they used the wrong spelling of you're...for a grammar nazi they're not very good....

Mishqueen said...

Well, to be honest...we ARE all laughing at your blog and making fun of it. I guess you'll have to get over it. ;)

triciathomas said...

No Tamn no one laugh's at you!!! We luv you! I think all these people are just jelly 'cause they wanna be you and have your perfect life. Sorry suckahs!!!

Melissa said...

You mean there are people out there who still think you are real???

Cammee said...

Oh, too funny!!

Salt H2O said...

I don't know how this blog could be any more blantant about what it is...unless you titled it SATIRE.

Chelsea said...

It's true. No one thinks you're a literate.

Jen said...

Oh TAMN, NOBODY'S laughing at this blog, ever. We all take it very, very seriously. Don't listen to the h8rs.

Jackie H said...

I laugh at your blog and make fun of it.

PS This is the only blog that I don't immediately push mute on my computer because of the song list. What does that say about me?

Reynolds Family said...

You are amazing . . . 'no one thinks I'm a literate' will keep me laughing for weeks!

The Other Oyler's said...

Well little do they know that we are laughing at THEM!!! Bahahaha.

AzĂșcar said...

Oh, honey, NO! Of coarse we don't laugh at you! FOR RUDE!

Miss Frazzled said...

I wish I were cool enough to receive hate mail.

Anna said...

Oh, if only they knew they were the Pots and Kettles... but it's funny they totally miss it and end up looking like the fools! Thanks TAMN!

GladysIcanbee said...

There's no doubt you're a cute crier. Clearly there are people who missed your blog on patriarticle blessings and the plan. I hope you 8 at least a bite of a pork salad to feel better.

Shannon said...

These are my favorite posts ever. Ever ever. Ever ever ever. I want to know how you handle these. Do you contact them and say "hey, this blog is a satire and I'm going to use your comment, K"? Or do you just post them and hope they come back and stumble upon them? Either way, it's hilarious.

Jessica said...

Bahaha! That's hilarious. Geniuses.

Kirstin said...

It's true, we are laughing at your blog...but not for the reasons these people think we are!

Heidi said...

Laughing at your blog? Goodness no!! =0) I love that so many people wrote to tell you about your misspelling of "to", is that ALL they found? Really?!! Maybe their editing skills need some work too.

Sarah said...

OMGosh - these are HI-lar-ious! TAMN - we totes don't think your a literate! That grammar nazi might be though...

Kamie said...

These posts are my favorite. Times one million.

Tamn don't let there jellosy 4 u get in the way of youre cutness~!

Kat Green said...

I love these hate letters, TAMN. They inspire me to try to write a fake clueless hate letter myself, but I know I could never be nearly as funny as the real haterz.

Boe said...

didn't they talk about beam/mote disease in conference? some people weren't listening...

Little Lovables said...

I love these b/c all of the people wrote "your" instead of the proper "you're"

Sarah said...

i, for one, am GLAD that you don't post pictures of yourself because i know i would be super intimidated and depresseed bc you have about 100 more colors in your hair and are a size 0. it makes us size 2's fill fat!

Abby said...

"mis-spell." Love it.

Jessica said...

I'm not sure what made me laugh harder. "ITS CALLED SERVICE" or the last moron who called you ugly because you haven't posted any pictures of yourself.
I for one am grateful you don't put pictures of you up. It might make the rest of us feel so bad about ourselves we'd leave the church.

Hark said...

TAMNers, these crazies are just jealous that you can be so flippin adorable without even showing pictures of yourself. Posting your own pictures when you're so cute could be vain and totally not righteous. You're just doing the right thing.

Jules said...

Priceless. Who writes to complain about "hitting to close to home" without realizing that phrase points out this blog for what it really is? Brain power people!

Alicia said...

These posts are my faves. And "a literate?!?!" Slaughtered me. You rock my world.

Sara and Dustin said...

"IT'S CALLED SERVICE" is my favorite line. Way too funny!

Renny said...

I'm certain if her friend recommended this blog to her that at some point she will express her opinion and tell her friend of her email. At which point I fully expect that her friend will laugh until she is blue in the face. Then, laugh some more.
One more thing to the judgy judgers. If you think this blog is legit, where do you get off emailing someone to tell them you don't like them and that nobody does? How is that better? Nicer? Christlike?
I'm confused.

The Boob Nazi said...

Also, OF COURSE WE'RE NOT LAUGHING AT YOU!!! We lurve you!

The Boob Nazi said...

Sigh. Thank you. These are my favorite posts.

Rachel said...

These comments prove what a wonderful talent you are in perfectly capturing and satirizing all the narcissistic Mommy bloggers out there.

Chels said...

HOW DO PEOPLE NOT KNOW?!?!?! I MEAN COME ON! TAMN'S BEEN ON THE NEWS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

Dave Lucy & Marley Gurney said...

hahahaha oh TAMN your my favorite. I laugh at your blog all the time, and you probably look at mine and laugh too! (Guilty of taking pics while eating, and one heck of a bday party for a 2 yr old) But, my husband and I didn't get married in the temple we got sealed, plus my husband doesn't work for apx so we don't move cross country every summer so he isn't going door to door being, what I like to call, "pimped out".

Needless to say, i'm not holy enough to really make fun of...

Oh crap did that make sense?? I haven't had my daily intake of 60 oz of Coke yet... You understand right skinny TAMN?

Ben & Emily said...

Seriously? No! Tamn, we NEVER laugh at your blog!!

Que and Brittany's Adoption Journal said...

Oh deer. People are such meanie-bo-beanies! Seriously they need to learn more from you and your fabulous life!

Carol said...

Tamn, I jest sat down and cried when I read that anyone would criticize your blog so I need to validate you. You are smart, clever and I'm sure you're beautiful, too, although I've never seen you. You have a sweet spirit and your blog is a great act of service.

I would never think of laughing at your blog! Please ignore those cruel comments and keep being your wonderful self. Remember, you are a child of God and everyone is speshal, but maybe you are a little more speshal that others.

Emily R said...

EVERYONE LOVES you. Who could possibly laugh at your blog?

your grammatical ways are ADORABLE!!! you can tell emailer#3 to get off your back cause ps - they used the wrong "your" for "not have everyone think your illiterate"...
it is SUPPOSED to be you'RE...
seriously!!! - you think there's a beam in their eye? something about glass houses? or first thrower of a rock? ;)

Palila said...

I only laugh when you're funny, but not when you're for serious. Then, I take you srsly.

Candice said...

TAMN.. I would NEVER make fun of your blog.. what a meany..

Kristen said...

Such Frumpsters. Clearly they didn't go to hair school and learn real-life practical stuff like you did, but instead went and got some degree which is why they're soooo uptight about spelling!

Wendy said...

No TAMN, we'd never, ever make fun of you. You're too righteous!

The Girl said...

"just a heads up in case you want to fix it and not have everyone think your illiterate."

Seriously? She thinks she's smart when she doesn't know the difference between "your" and "you're"? Wow.

Thanks, TAMN. You inspire.

Court and Jill said...

Are these emails seriously for real??? Oh the humor!!!! I'm blown away at these people! Clueless!

McKinley said...

Tamn I think you are darling and cute, you always make me laugh! Don't worry about what these unhappy people say, they clearly are threatened by your greatness! Plus my mom always told me... opinions are like belly buttons, everybody has one.

Steph said...

-- No one thinks I'm a literate --

Best. Ever.

I want the bumper sticker.

Or maybe vinyl because that's more modern.

Larsons said...

i am so sorry! none of us are perfect. and for them to come to a blog and say that, that's just dumb. blogs are supposed to give you joy and ideas for what we all have in common.. HOBBIES. plain and simple, stick to the focus people...

you are amazing.. dont let it get to you!

Heidi said...

I happen to love reading everything you write. You are a blog-writing rock star.

And you make me laugh. Hard. And Often.

Meg N. said...

their the judgmentle 1's jujing you on you're spelling! and "we are all laughing at your blog and making fun of it"? I for 1 am shocked and apauled. I would NEVER make fun of u, TAMN!

p.s. I had a dream last nite that I bot you the darlingest vintage scrapbook/jurnal! & then I woke up & was like "oh my heck! it was all a dream! super sad!"

Manda Jane said...

They are just totally jealous of your cuteness (slash) awesomeness. I bet it was the same ugly person just pretending to be all different people, she can't stand that you are sooo much more righteous and way totally cooler than her.

Motion DeSmiths said...

"No one thinks I'm a literate."

I think this is the best thing you've ever written.

emandtrev said...

Thank you for the best laugh I've had all day. Seriously so perfect.

Our Dowland Journal said...

....completely clueless..... so sad....

Missy W. said...

the people who sent those emails were probably ugly, fat and boring. Let your light shine TAMN!

Anna M said...

what the H?

some people just need to vent on the pretties. (I get it all. the. time.)!.!.!

debbie said...

Sweetie,
Don't let the frumpsters win. Writing is all about telling people stuff, not spelling people stuff. And I think you spell better then George Washington EVER did!
Gobs of luv to ya.

La Yen said...

There is a name for people who send ugly comments like that: Visiting Teaching Supervisors.

MaLyn said...

What a bunch of jealous frumps. TAMN, you are so much better than them. Seriously!

allcatsaregrey79 said...

Oh my heck! Ppl take life way 2 seriously. They're just jealous of all you have 2 offer 2 the world.

allcatsaregrey79 said...

Oh my heck! Ppl take life way 2 seriously. They're just jealous of all you have 2 offer 2 the world.

Tiffany said...

TAMN I am just so relieved that you are a cute crier! Also, I have decided to embrace your definition of service for my own!

Chantel and Michael Magistro said...

I'm new to following your blog, but I LOVE it! and NO, it is definitely not true. Those people just don't have a very good sense of humor. At all. Your blog is unique, and perfect. They must be jealous.

Maddy said...

awesome! hehehehe

Natalie said...

I think you stole that last e-mail from my inbox. It looks exactly like the one my cousin sent me after I recommended this blog and she was a tad offended because you hit so close to home. Thanks for the laughs- I lurve u!

Skoddyboy said...

Oh TAMN, don't let these ppl get 2 u. There just jealous.

SammyStewart said...

You use tonz of grammer!!!! Just look at the number of esxclamation points and question marks in your average post!!!! How could they not see all that grammer????

Sarah said...

hahahaha. I like how the last person who corrected your grammar used the wrong "your or you're"

it should have been you're.

Brynn said...

LOVES IT!

Doesn't being names Tiffany/Amber/Megan/Nicole, married to a dental/bizz school/law school student named Jordan/Jason/Wes/Taylor sort of give it away? I love it when it doesn't.

dharvey said...

I don't have a clue OF who you are.... I just stumbled into your blog and was EMBARASSED for you OF how you spelled "hitting to close to home" on your sidebar, just a heads up in case you want to fix it and not have everyone think YOUR illiterate".
___________

^^ Someone who writes this awkwardly has the temerity to correct another writer? Oh, puh-leeze !! XOXO, Love you.

Reyna said...

What? Do you mean to tell me that the 'My Family' pic at the bottom of your blog isn't really you? Dang! I've been so envious of yoo in all of your purple glory, that I've been dieting and drinking beet juice in hopes of becoming yoo! I guess I'll just trash dees purple bikini and crown and have dee doc put my nose back on.

Melinda May said...

Don't stop blogging. I know you won't because it's just not you! I LOVED reading this one. It was hilarious! Makes me smile as well as others! Keep it up!

Melissa Bailey said...

Love it! You are now my hero. And you already graduated high school, so there is no need to worry about litteracy :)

The Dummers said...

Jealousy makes people so mean! Keep being perfect!
Hopefully, they'll get it someday so we can stop being embarrassed for them.

jdb in AZ said...

I think the MEANingful comments are jelousy over your glammer more than gramour.

Trapper and Suzy said...

lol This was so funny. It's so annoying how people think they should go around telling you "the truth" about you and that it's somehow gonna change you.

They just make fools of themselves.

boysrus said...

Wow. You had a spelling nazi bash you when she, herself, had a spelling mistake?

You can't make this stuff up. Too priceless.

samantha said...

Hilarious how the person who criticized you for spelling "hitting to close to home" with the wrong type of to, used the wrong type of your in her email. Shouldn't it be you're? They're the illiterate one!
Also funny how the person who thinks changing people is bad, told you to change! I can't believe people still don't understand this blog! Keep it up TAMN! You make my day!

Lonny and Jesse said...

I'll admit, the first time I stumbled onto this blog I almost puked because I thought, "This girl has totally lost touch with reality and has a MAJOR crush on herself". But now that I know what's up... I think it's HILARIOUS! Especially the Lilypie about lactating for over a year! You are too witty.

joanna said...

just keep on keepin it reel TAMN - we lurv yur service..

Susan said...

but the misspellings + the blatant narcissism are the main reason i visit this blog. i really feel at home here.

Rachel said...

I especially love how the person said "your illiterate" instead of "you're illiterate." Ha! TAMN, "your" the best!

Rebecca said...

"IT'S CALLED SERVICE." luv it. keep it up tamners. ur the best.

Crystal said...

"just a heads up in case you want to fix it and not have everyone think your illiterate" - that should be "you're" not "your". If you are going to pull someone up on spelling, you better double check your on email!

Becky said...

TAMN,

They're just jealous! I'm so grateful for the things I've learned from you. You can help change me any day!

Thanks for the laugh!

Sarah said...

CLASSIC!!
Oh TAMNers, you just keep on serving, honey.. Like not posting pictures of yourself - that's a whole NOTHER service bc you keep us from crying ourselves to sleep at night from how hotttt you are..

I love it.

All you literate/literal commentators out there take a peek at the sidebars.. lol

Emily@Little Forever Family said...

Oh does this make me laugh!!! Tamners, have they not read about the real you in the news? Hahaha on them. I come here for a GREAT laugh, simply that. Keppe me smiling Tamn!
(And since I am one of the few that has actually met you, I will fight the haters, promise!)
P.S. Did you hear we are expecting very unexpectedly??? Crazy!

merrilykaroly said...

hahaha!

amygermer said...

Love the comment "hiding pictures of yourself you must be real ugly"...doesn't she know you are only providing more service by not posting your photo, because you don't want them to get jealous and feel bad about about themselves!!

Carrot Jello said...

You totally made these up.
I cannot believe there are people that would take this seriously.
Seriously.
Seriously?

Jessica said...

sometimes we all have trials, TAMN. youre trial is your rightchus and beautiful. its hard. but i can see you are so humble, and its a good think your a cute crier and such a good exsample to us all.

YaYa said...

Giving service only brings more blessings... write?

Brooklyn said...

Can't believe no one's mentioned 'corret' in the second e-mail. Priceless word to screw up :)

Beckie said...

People still don't get it....AmaZInG!

Angela said...

ok, I'm a grammar nazi, but TAMN, I accept you for YOU, because you're YOU. and furthermore, I had my mental red pen flying on the emails from those that are jealous of all that is TAMN, because they were SO not correct. I got your back, girl, no worries!

JenB said...

No WAY! Do not let them get to you. Those e-mells were probly written by people who don't even have bangs

Crave said...

i think your speling everything corret. so true why worry about mis-spelling when there's so many cute spring skirts to by?

Steph said...

my favorite kind of post right there! when i first found your blog, I was like, wow this girl's a piece of work, and 2 seconds later i figured things out. and I have loved you ever since.

Naomi said...

You R 2 funny! 2 bad they don't get it. Type on tamners. Type on.

Trisha said...

Haha, some people have no sense of irony.

The Life of Kory and Jane said...

these are too great! like others, I live how the one correcting your spelling used the wrong
your're"

D*mac said...

My FAVORITE thing ever is how the third comment uses your instead of you're. She must be sooooooooo smart.

Mrs. Clark said...

Hahaha! You're doing service, and Martha Stewart thinks her job is being a teacher! Loved this post. And La Yen is right. Better be careful--you're going to be called as a VT supervisor!

Gwen said...

D*mac, I noticed that too!

"have everyone think your illiterate"

you're!

Danielle said...

TAMN! I can't believe how many people don't understand you! Keep the fun coming! Your hilarious!!

dancingqueen97 said...

The only reason we are laughing is because your so hi-FEAKING-larious! Love you TAMN! (:

Janene said...

I think making judgments about other people's writing is rude. really? who cares? you make judgments about something so unimportant without knowing how the person learned how to read or if possibly they learned multiple languages at once and interchange on some words. I think if your gong to make such judgment you should keep it to yourself. It's truly a turn off for me to continue reading a blog by someone who wants to profit by making fun of others. I wonder what your advertisers might think about that. I think you have a lot to learn yourself.

Janene said...

and you moderate your comments which explains a lot!

Jeannie said...

Ok, first of all, I am seriously going 2 kick their trash for saying that TAMN.

And B...What does illiterate mean?

And 4th, I'm getting so emotional over this we should go eat cheesecake.

The Kindle Family said...

they are just jellous! ;)

Meg said...

Thanks for the laughs! I needed that today. :)

Tamara said...

You crack me up! How lucky are you-- you get to provide service to all the dummies with no sense of humor, while giving the rest of us a much needed laugh! You might just be TOTALLLLY AWESOME! OMG! hahahaha...

Katie said...

I'm a first timer. This is my new favorite blog. I must thank you.

Julie de Azevedo Hanks said...

It they ever read their scriptures they would know not to point out the beem in TAMN's eye when they have a moat in theres.

Josh said...

Oh TAMN, I wish I could read your inbox everyday!

Aria said...

wow, this has to be one of my favorite posts. keep sharing the hate mail!!!

Sara Sue said...

It's called service. This is totally my new favorite blog.

Jen @ Just for Rachel said...

The one who said she was appalled at your blog made me laugh! I love your blog! Maybe she hates it because it is a little too close to home (I know some people who don't think your blog is funny. It's because they are exactly like TAMN themselves, which is awesome! :) I really don't undertand how someone wouldn't understand the purpose of your blog. Isn't is super fun to write this blog? I would think so!

jg said...

And um, Janene commenter, you still don't get this? After reading all the comments? Geez.

Amber said...

Why are you soooooo freaking funny? I can not get enough! "Guys, is that true?" Long live TAMN!

Shari Nelson said...

Yep it's true! You should seriously be sooooo ashamed of yourself!

Shari Nelson said...

Satire from Wikipedia

In Satire, human or individual vices, follies, abuses or shortcomings are censured by RIDICULE,DERISION, BURLESQUE, IRONY or other methods, ideally with the intent of improvement. Although Satire is usually meant to be funny, it's purpose is not so much humour for it's own sake AS AN ATTACK ON SOMETHING STRONGLY DISAPPROVED BY THE SATIRIST, USING THE WEAPON OF WIT.

Even the most light-hearted Satire has a serious "after-taste"

You can either belive that She is truly being funny or someone carrying the Latter Day Saint title and using it in a very ugly and mean way. How sad it is that we are that light-minded and insensitive!

The Romney Family said...

Did one of those people SERIOUSLY email you to correct your spelling and then type "not have everyone think YOUR illiterate"?!?!?!!? It's just too, too sad. My husband nearly has a heart-attack when I make him read your blog (wait, should that be "your" blog or "you're" blog...or "ur" blog? Always so hard to remember...) because he can not believe that real people could ever make some of the mistakes you make fun of. Like using "weather" instead of "whether". Do these things really, really happen?!?! Come ON, people. There's just no excuse.

Amna said...

HAHAHA. I know I'm commenting like 1.5 years late.. but WOW!
People really don't get it?? That's hard to believe.
Just found your blog and read through a whole year. I mean, a HOLE year.
