I am one of those people who LOVES to use commas. Commas are pretty much the best punctuation ever invented. Sometimes, I add a shortened clause just to use a comma. If I could, I would decorate with commas - everywhere. I would make art made only of commas. I dream about going to Comma (that's a special comma land I made up). If I could give commas for Christmas, you betcha I would. I think some things I write sound like Captain Kirk's speech.
People like me drive comma haters crazy. (It's mutual!) B-Dub is one such comma hater. (He is also a habitual run-on sentence offender, which also drives me crazy. Yep, he's one of those.)
Here's a recent conversation I had with Scooter (new secretary) about something he drafted:
ME: You need a comma here (indicating).
SCOOTER: I know that, but B-Dub took it out.
ME: Let's compromise with a semicolon then.
We both had a chuckle.
