Good gravy!!! I cannot believe that memo came from a school!!!!!!!!!! I would actually have second thoughts in allowing my children to attend THERE!!

I like Henri's idea!! Why are we considered OCD because we catch errors and want to bring it to THEIR attention??? especially a school! They need to be told!




My daughter's almost done there!

Good question. I often wonder that myself.



This weekend was practically painful for me. I was seemingly surrounded by stupidity.

We were at a restaurant, where their white board read, "lemonade, add straberry..."

I pointed out that strawberry was spelled wrong (as in, "get the pen and fix it"). The bartender laughed and said, "I know, right?"



Later we're driving. An SUV drives by with window paint, "Just married. Honk for marrage."

That's scary. I know you don't know me, but I'm rarely serious.

Sign at Home Depot:
"We match competitors advertised prices."


Presumably this is a sign in EVERY store. NO ONE realized that "competitors" is possessive here and needs an apostrophe?

That's painful Linda.

Does anyone else get the scrapbook.com newsletter? The current one begins with an advert for a Fiskars trimmer; the PROCISSION TRIMMER. I stared at that for a good few seconds thinking before I scrolled down. And underneath is the correct name; "ProCision".

One is a play on words, the other sounds as if it has had very personal surgery.

Unfortunate.

Oh dear!

I hate when words are spelled wrong in an attempt to be cute.

No.

I know "Kat" is often short for Kathy. Makes sense. As a nickname, it makes sense.


Something like "Kitty Kat Klub" just seems dumb to me.



"Cricut" drives me nuts. That word is NOT pronounced cricket!

This thread is hilarious! I always frown upon my fiance's awful grammar and syntax.

Btw (or should I say "by the way"), how is "Cricut" pronounced??

It would be pronounced "cry-cut."
