SimpleMarkup #35 – The Stubborn Comma

SimpleMarkup #35

This week’s comic isn’t limited to fiction editors, of course. I’m sure almost anyone who has a computer can experience this. And that’s one definite upside to working at home—there’s no one in the “office” to see you acting like an angry monkey when you make a ridiculous mistake like this one. I squished a gnat on my monitor the other night, and that’s prime perma-comma potential right there.

Have you ever had one of these commas?
