Short & Sweet

Today I received an email from a Professor (I work in Higher Ed) and the subject line read: 

“Fan Drive by PSY Club” 

The email went on to state the Psychology Club was collecting fans for senior citizens.  

But as you know, I am a grammar freak and below is where my mind went when I read the subject line. I had to email the professor for clarification! Below is what I sent:


“Is this a Fan Drive Sponsored by the PSY Club?


Or a Fan Drive By PSY Club – like a fan drove by and shot the club members?


Or are we as employees supposed to drive by and shoot fans???


I am so confused by your subject line….”


I haven’t heard back from him. I wonder why? Inquiring minds need to know!
