I'm waiting to be told what to do. How would I know when to do something ?
2. It raises our hopes with mention of a poll (polls are fun) which defuses the anger.
We should stop picking on the polls.
3. It flashes a titillating hint of anarchy by not capitalising "but" to start the sentence in paragraph 2, and then follows that up with some very daring apostrophe work: "it'd".
We should stop saying titillating until I emerge from puberty.
4. It finishes up with a sales pitch/command that gets us angry again. Like we should care about your stupid non-hypenated tshirt design.
I'm so confused.
(P.S. Remember this post when the time comes to list your favourite post of mine).
