Whose back did Lola Openg want scratched? That’s the question I’m left with when I read this on Yahoo Lifestyle:
The writer alleges that Ms. Openg said, “Scratch her back.” Whose back would that be? In fact Ms. Openg asked Alexa, “Scratch my back.” That’s a bit different, isn’t it? And that illustrates what happens when a writer and editor have no idea what a direct quote is.
