Help!!! I'm as bad as Trump; SUNDAY PEOPLE ? SEPTEMBER 3, 2017 NEWS & FEATURES 23 rachael.bletchly@people.co.ukJUST SAYING! Rachael Bletchly.

Byline: Rachael Bletchly

I HAVE a dreadful addiction!

Colleagues told me so for years, but I was in denial!!

But now I've had a Damascene revelation and my unlikely saviour is a fellow addict: Donald Trump!!!!!!

You see, I abuse exclamation marks.

The Washington Post calculated that Trump has used more than 13,296 of them since joining Twitter in 2009.

Grammar experts say it's lazy, insincere and shows lack of confidence in your ideas and communication skills.

And the shame of having anything in common with The Donald whatsoever has forced me into recovery.

So, in future I shall only use an exclamation mark when I'm truly gobsmacked or overjoyed at momentous events.

Like the day I can type "Donald Trump impeached!"
