I finally mustered up the courage to photograph the repair shop I wrote about many, many pages ago... It was even worse than I initially thought.
Damn those possessive Nintendo's and Xbox's!
Good old Facebook gave me a new one today - "carn't".
Dose it annoy anyone else that they carn't egnore the terrible grammar and spelling on Facebook post's?
Isn't 'carnt' the opposite to 'carn'?
Like at the footy when my DH yells out "carnyabuggergetitupim!"
Hang on, that's Man Speak, not English at all....sorry...
Hey, on another note. Was speaking to a truck driver yesterday and he mentioned something very interesting. He said that if you mispell a word on a transport log you can (and are) fined around $800 for 'falsifying records'.
He put "Pt Adelaide" instead of Port Adelaide and got pinged.
So if you mess language with a public servant, they fine you.
The mind boggles.
Haha Mrs Beee!
How about dry reaching?
On news.com.au the other day they wrote that something or other had 'taken the wind out of the sales'. Yes, they were talking about house sales, but that doesn't mean it is okay! That site has sooo many errors. Well the mobile version does anyway, I don't read the real one.
"Flying is 22 times more safer than driving car". I am pretty sure you can be more safe, and simply safer... but I don't think you can be more safer?
With regard to "taken the wind out of the sales"... Apart from the fact that it's a little tacky I think it's ok. Poetic licence and all that.

Between "plane sailing" and "taken the wind out of the sales" news.com.au has the sailing puns down to a fine art!
