Kraigslist Katastrophes

I’m an editor, so I’m hyper-attenuated to spelling and grammar errors. I also suffer from an debilitation affliction known as AADD (Automotive Attention Deficit Disorder), which forces me to read Craigslist ads every single morning before I can get any work done.

The combination of these two personality disorders is enough to render me unconscious. To wit:

Tonto is attempting to sell his 1978 Jeep. But why is he yelling?

It has a three-speed "tramsmission"

Sgt. Slaughter here has sadly run out of punctuation. Can we get Sally Struthers or Sarah MacLaughlin to work up a few tears and send this guy some help? Just 30 cents a day – less than a cup of coffee – can provide this man with the periods and commas he so desperately needs:
