    I see this one all the time and it bugs the hell out of me! Would you say "I do that everyweek"? No!

    Everyday occurrence, yes. Occurs everyday, no.

    Now the ad in the top left-hand corner is sporting a couple of glaring apostrophe omissions...

    "Bub Hubs free..."
    "...dont forget to sign up"

    GUYS! Do you not have proof readers of some kind?! Tell you what, I'll do it for nothing, just to spare myself the agony of having to look at it .

    My favorite one from work this week:
    Front driver's seat.
    As in "I located xyz on the front driver's seat." I promptly asked my colleague to show me where the rear driver's seat was as I didn't think my legs would reach if I sat in the back to drive. My colleague didn't understand.
    Another I get at work all the time is draws. As in "the desk draws". The whole while I'm thinking "wow your desk must have superior dexterity" or "I wonder what the desk drew and in which colour".
    How many times do I have to change it and email you back so it says drawers? And yet every single time you still write draws?!

    Hmm... I would have assumed as opposed to the front passenger's seat? Saying "the front seat" doesn't give enough information IMO. ETA: But of course, they could have just said "the driver's seat"! I gotcha...

    I totally get the "draws" frustration, I see it so often!

    Yep it is the "driver's seat" or the "front driver's side seat". Given that these reports are used in court they need to be spot on so a certain degree of "anal-ism" is required! And no matter how many times I correct a particular colleague's reports with an explanation, she still writes it the same. ARGH!

    Are anybody else's eyes bleeding every time they read the word "Yoghourt" in the Jalna ad on the right hand side of the screen? Or is this some new spelling of "yoghurt" that I didn't know existed?

    I believe it's an accepted (but unusual) spelling, but yes - it does make me twitch a little.
