Now listen up

I just read a novel that had a sentence in it I just couldn’t pass up commenting on. The sentence was, “Thanks a lot, mom.” Does anyone see what’s wrong with this sentence?

The proper pronoun is not capitalized, that’s what. The word ‘Mom’, that is.

When you are writing dialog, which shows the speaker talking to someone, you must capitalize the proper pronouns. That sentence should have been, “Thanks a lot, Mom.” See what I mean?
It shows respect for the person you’re talking to. Remember that.

Love you,
Bully Bitch
