Grammar You Menace

"If only we hadn't started reading quietly to ourselves. Everything was so simple at the start, before grammar came along and ruined things" (Truss, 71).

I think this passage shows the importance of grammar. Without correct grammar, when we read, they automatically don't make sense. So, we made things up in order to make it make sense. I'm not sure as to whether her saying "grammar came along and ruined things" is sarcastic or not because she gets upset at people who use it incorrectly, but she also praises it.
