"OMG, that's wrong!" The retired English teacher marks a letter from the White House and sends it back



The notes were spread over a letter signed by President Trump.

In the upper left corner: "Did you try grammar and style checks?"

Top right: "Federal is activated only when used as part of a nickname."

And down: "OMG, this is FALSE!"

The letter dated May 3, printed on stationery The White House was addressed to Yvonne Mason, 61, a former High School English teacher who had retired last year but had not quite left grading paper mode, she said Sunday.

When she received the letter in the mail, she pulled her go-to-purple pen and began making corrections. Then she took a picture, wrote the letter on Facebook and sent it back to the White House.

"You're important, you have to be a part of it, you have to be careful what's going on," she said.

When the word spread about the corrected letter she sent to the White House, Ms. Mason received hundreds of messages from people across the country – some positive (a lawyer in Houston wanted to know if she would be interested, to look over his appeals documents) and other venomous ones (one person suggested she "must be a lonely bitter witch with many cats"). 19659002] But Ms. Mason did not focus on the negativity.

"Let her have her day, bless her little hearts," she said. "You do not change my mind."
