The "I before E" rule has so many exceptions that an "E before I" rule would be just as useful, amirite?

@LordThundercunt I before E except after C.

"I before e except after c and sounding like a in a neighboring way and on weekends and holidays and all throughout May YOU'LL ALWAYS BE WRONG NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY!!!!"

@It's "sounding like 'a' in 'neighbor' and 'weigh'"

You're right, it is. I didn't even read it when I copied and pasted it from another site because I wanted to quickly post that quote. Sorry.

And "YOU'LL NEVER BE RIGHT NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY!", not "always be wrong" =D Lesson learned -- always take the time to do the work yourself, because somebody else probably did a crappy job of it. ;D

I'd have a seizure if either way was always right. And don't even try with foreign languages and their crazy rules. Herein you can say that neither "ie" or "ei" is always right.

Sorry, I'm kinda hopped up on caffeine.

so true. although when you think about it, most of the english words that have E before I all make an 'EY' sound. But there's obviously exeptions to that too.
